This spring, I really wanted to try to grow some of my own food to eat. Inspired by my friends that have successful gardens- Greg/Erica, Anthony/Jeanna, Erin/Jeff, Jen/Christian and Terry; I set out with 2 lettuce plants and 2 Swiss chard plants given to me as starter plants. I figured if my friends can do it, so can I! I grew them inside for about a month- things were going really well. My plants were getting leaves and improving everyday. I then replanted them to a planter box- that’s when it all started to go downhill.
Juliann gave me sunflowers as a gift for attending her wedding. So I planted her sunflowers instead. I followed all the directions in the package and put the pot in the sun, so I’m off to a good start. Wish me luck!
