14. Have a garden. Grow vegetables, herbs and flowers

My Story

Updated February 19, 2009

I have a few obstacles to overcome here.

The first is finding a place to grow my garden. Garden patches are hard to come by in apartments. I guess I could look into having a container garden on my patio, but I think I might prefer to wait until I have a house with a yard.

The second is my infamous black thumb. One time I bought a plant for a friend for her birthday. It was a Friday. When I went to her house to give it to her, I found out that her boyfriend has surprised her with a weekend trip and she would be back Sunday night. By Sunday night, the plant was dead – not just wilted, but black and crispy. I have no idea what went wrong.

It doesn’t really matter how easy a plant is supposed to be to take care of, I can’t seem to get it right. But I dream of having a beautiful garden and growing my own vegetables, herbs, and flowers.
