Hi friends! Today I wanted to share with you some tips for starting your own garden seeds indoor. Growing up I lived in a suburban neighborhood in a home with a lavish flower garden on every side of the house. The last thing I wanted to do was to help my mother water the flowers. It wasn’t until high school when I took a plant science class that my love for horticulture started. The idea that I could put a seed into the soil, water it, give it some fertilizer, and magically see it grow over the next few months caught my heart and I’ve loved it ever since.
“The Green Pinky” is a play on words. Everyone that knows someone who can keep plants alive will usually refer to said person as having, “A Green Thumb”. But here is a secret… a gardeners secret. We’ve killed plants… sometimes we continue to kill plants even after years of experience. That’s how gardeners learn the art. You could do everything right, and then a pest takes over the entire crop. So then next year, you spray for the pest or use other non-chemical methods to make sure that pest doesn’t take over this years crop. You make mental notes or write down what worked and what didn’t. Everyone’s growing environments are completely different and no one starts out as a master gardener.
If you aren’t a green thumb yet, no worries! It takes time and practice… and of course remembering to water your gardens.
