How does your garden grow?

I love to plant stuff. This is somewhat of a new obsession. It does not necessarily mean that I have a green thumb. This next week I am going to work on my garden and my window boxes.

We always plant tomatoes. This year I think I'll plant green peppers and cucumbers. Do you have any advice? I'm always looking for some old wives' tale.

Do you plant anything? If so, what?

I have a tomato plant and 2 pineapple plants growing right now... but then again I live in Orlando and our growing season/crops are different than most places

I will plant tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, peas, and cauliflower this year. You'll need lots of sun, make sure to water.

I love to plant flowers, too. I love that it's getting to be that time of year.... I've got some weeding and yard work to do this weekend!

I love to plant! I always plant me an herb garden and a salsa garden. Plant some cherry tomatoes so MM can pick and eat. My kids wouldnt touch a tomato until I planted those. They just pick and pop them into their mouths.
Mint is very hardy and spreads quickly. I also love rosemary, which can grow into a bush. Both of those come back year after year. Don't cut rosemary back.

I have the total opposite of a green thumb, whatever that color might be! My husband does too. He once killed a bonzai tree. I think they are supposed to live for decades. Maybe more.

I have a black thumb. Scott won't even let me buy plants anymore because I kill everything. We have landscaping and then I try to plant a few pots of things in front of our door. I can do okay with two pots but that's about it.
I would LOVE to grow vegetables one day.
