Every spring, I get the gardening bug, even though I have no talent for gardening and I usually end up killing my poor little plants. I love plants, though, and I'm determined to keep trying.
This year, I found three packets of seeds left over from my most successful gardening endeavor, the first year of our marriage. I actually had herbs growing in my bedroom windowsill for a few months before they died! The radishes that I planted in a box outside lived despite lack of frequent watering.
So I filled up some containers in my kitchen with potting soil. I put bark in the bottoms for better drainage. Lettuce is on the left, radishes in the middle, and basil on the right. I've decided I like radishes. They come up so fast and make you feel you're doing something right.
