If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you’ve learned quickly that I have a black thumb. I cannot grow much of anything.
But, I try.
Take tomatoes, example.
I love tomatoes.
Tomatoes are the easiest thing in the world to grow, besides toe fungus and monkey grass. (Don’t ask me how I know these things.)
For some reason, though, I cannot grow tomatoes.
I’ve tried. (Do a search for tomatoes and read all the blog posts I’ve written on the little red fruit…it is a long and sordid affair.)
I’ve tried growing them in pots.
Then, last year, I tried growing them in a raised bed.
I was only marginally successful.
This year, though…this year will be different.
I just know it.
I feel it in my bones.
