I am an urban dweller. I have no yard. My "yard" is a small porch in the front of my third story apartment, shaded by a large tree.
I have no experience tending to plants. Yet, despite these obvious challenges, I am working to create a small garden.
My one rule for creating this small garden is "keep it simple". Therefore, I've kept my planting endeavors to 5 green bean plants, 5 pepper plants, and 4 Roma tomato plants. Eventually, I will also plant a few herbs as well!
Below are photos (taken a few weeks ago) displaying my humble beginnings of my "gardening" endeavors. Enjoy!

|Seeds: The organic pepper seeds are from Home |
Depot. The other seeds were gifted to me by friends Joe &
Lisa in February after chatting with them about my "green
thumb" endeavors. Thanks for helping me get started!

Look for future "Chronicles of my Green Thumb" blog entries, as I will be tracking the progress of my plant's growth!
