So I think I have a Green Thumb...

Not really, but according to my sister since I am getting older I am starting to nest.  Yeah, right.  I decided I wanted to grow some tomatoes and herbs especially after I saw a sharp spike in tomatoes at the grocery store.  Hence, my container planting.

Let's just say I read a few articles on the Internet on what would be the best things to grow...ie the easiest to grow.  So off to the local Wally world for seeds and plants.  I ended up purchasing seeds for basil and cilantro and a tomato plant and mint plant.  I spent an hour reading the labels on the potting soil and when I finally decided I was good to go. 

The week I purchased the items, was also the week of my cousins graduation from college with his BS in Psychology.  So that Sunday while my aunt and I relaxed I planted seeds and planted the plants in bigger containers.  Then I crossed my fingers hopping this would work out. 

                                                     This was about 2 weeks after planting.

This was on 6/10/2010

I discovered my first tomato on 6/10/10
Oh, my another tomato!
Basil from May until June.  Big growth!

Here are my mint and cilantro plants:

Not quite a green thumb, but I am growing somethings!

Looking good, I have a garden, which I am ashamed to say, because I have been neglecting it.

Wow! I want to grow something, or should I say, I want to watch something grow! Good job.
