Black Thumb

Welcome to my garden blog. This is my first year with a garden and I am going to be trying out the Square Foot Garden method by Mel Bartholomew. It seems like the most clear-cut, easy to understand way which is what I need.

Because I have a black thumb. Really.

Any potted plant I've gotten has died within a few weeks. I received a spider plant once, a plant that is supposedly very easy to care for, and it slowly but surely died. I attempted to grow tomatoes last year starting from seeds. The cats and kids managed to kill off 14 of 18 seedlings before I could transplant them, and the 4 I transplanted to a little spot outside, slowly grew but not enough, and never bore fruit. So this year, I'm hoping for a miracle.
