My best friend and neighbor showed me the vegetable garden she planted a few weeks ago in her back yard and it looked so awesome that I wanted to try to grow one of my own! I had visions of picking tomatoes off of thriving vines and making salads right from my own garden! If she could do it, then I could too, right? Why not?
It's been a few years since I've tried, so I just felt like I needed to give it a shot and see if my thumb was still black. I have fond memories of my mother tending a vegetable garden in the back yard of our Pittsburgh home when I was growing up. This was something I wanted to do! Hubby is always down for a home project, so we were off to Home Depot to get inspired.

We were feeling pretty good about our selections and I sent a text to my friend about it on the car ride home.
No wonder I kill everything. All of a sudden, I was feeling a little bit in over my head. But Ollie is clearly excited, so we forged forward with our plans.

I am excited about my first real vegetable garden. Let's hope something grows and my black thumb will turn green. Any tips from experienced gardeners for a newbie like me? Have you ever tried to grow a vegetable garden?
