I managed to grow something from seed.
I planted tomato seeds, daisy seeds, coneflower seeds AND poppy seeds and not one, seriously, not even one seed germinated. Not even in the lovely heat of the relocatedgreenhouse.
Not being one to ever give up, I put eight romaine lettuce seeds and eight spinach seeds in two different planters on the back deck.
And I actually grew something -- enough to make salads! I'm not a complete grow-my-own-food failure but one cannot live on spinach and lettuce.
Especially considering my experiment with growing strawberries in hanging planters is an utter failure, even with the fancy hanging planters hanger my husband built.
Not being one to ever give up, I'm going to build (okay, well, Dwayne will build) a raised bed for the strawberries.
Like bee balm, I won't quit until I'm knee-deep in strawberries, too.
