Do you have one? Have you been growing anything this year outside?

I've been trying a garden - key word trying, the first round died off on us between the heat and the bunnies getting under our fence. I have some tomato plants that are going absolutely bananas though! It's hard to keep up with watering and a baby though, I'm finding. :/

We had a good sized garden last year but decided not to do one this year. I've been so busy with the kids, and between work, working on the house and helping his dad at the races, Dh has been really busy too.

He's better at gardening than me, whatever I plant usually dies because I forget to water them. I do have some flowers in my kitchen window but I never forget to water those because they're right by the sink. lol

I wish I had a green thumb! The only things that grow in my yard are things that I don't want to, like little mimosa trees, that we're constantly pulling up, from the seeds that blow off of my neighbor's tree.

I don't have a green thumb, but I do have a good eye I guess when it comes to gardening and landscaping=) Right now I'm growing two carrots (Ethan's preschool class planted veggies in little cups....when it got to big for the cup I transfered it to a tall glass jar so we can actually see the carrots....pretty neat) and three pumpkin vines....the flowers haven't bloomed yet, so don't know how many pumpkins we will actually have.

I would love to garden, but we live in base housing and we don't have a yard....so....

No green thumb but dumb luck. I love our landscaping. Most of it we did ourselves and I get compliments all of the time about how beautiful our yard and deck are. We are growing tomatoes this year and they're doing great. We also have basil growing in a pot in the house which is doing great.
