How does my garden grow?

Posted on

It’s Thursday, which means…Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writer’s Workshop! Up this week: 2.) You were supposed to start a garden this summer…share the fruits of your labor.

I have what I like to call a “Happy Life List”, which is essentially what others may refer to as a “Bucket List” but that sounds too depressing. On this list are many things, some serious (tell my husband I love him everyday) and some silly (learn to play the harmonica…which has been scratched out because, as it turns out, harmonica playing is really hard and makes you almost pass out).

Somewhere in between serious and silly was, “Grow an herb garden”.

Something you should know about me: I have killed every plant I have ever been charged with. Even the easy ones, even A CACTUS. Those things can withstand pretty much anything, except apparently, me.

This is why something as small as growing an herb garden made it on to my list, because this was a big deal.

I had grand plans of building raised beds in our backyard and basically becoming a farmer, but my darling husband gently suggested that I start a bit smaller.

You guys, I am ROCKING this garden. I’m going to have 50 bazillion cucumbers pretty soon.

I swear, they grow like 2 inches every day! I get so excited to come home and check on them at the end of the day.

In conclusion:

Dear Husband,

Next year I’m you’re building raised beds.

Your Green Thumbed Wifey
