Plant Killer

...After

When Spring came, I was so excited to start my own little “deck garden.”  I bought a bunch of colorful pots, dirt, seeds and watering cans.  Since I didn’t want to grow everything from “scratch” I also bought a few plants to nurture (Home Depot became my favorite place to go after work!)  I grew my own Basil, Chives, Oregano, Zinnias and Marigolds, and purchased four tomato plants and some various other ones.  My mom is a total green thumb so I figured I should start following in her footsteps!

After work, I would go home and check on my little babies making sure that they were watered and happy.  This lasted for a few months and then I started slacking.  I didn’t water as often, and they started looking a little brown.  I rejuvenated a few of them and promised myself that I would be a better caretaker.  Then the late summer/fall heatwave hit and it was all over.  I seemed to have forgotten about my plants, and 90% of them died.  Crispy.  Brown.  Dry.  Dead.  What a bummer.  Trying new things is all about learning what to do and what not to do.

To do?  WATER!  Harder than I thought!  I am going to give it a rest for the Winter and start back up again next Spring.
