Let's Count Some Beans
What Color Is Your Thumb?
I was not fortunate enough to be raised by an avid gardener. My mom dabbled some, but she wasn't an expert compared to our favorite muse - Martha Stewart. So, I will have to learn as I go. Gleaning information from others is helpful to be sure, but even so, what techniques they apply to their situations, may not work for my situations, which brings me back to gaining personal experience. There are two things that are somewhat comforting to me as I face this basic aspect of homesteading.
#1 I and my family won't starve if I fail while I do what I do best; read and learn by trial and error, but mostly error!
#2 Fortunately for me, my husband's thumb is a much greener than mine. Like all green thumbed people, he seems to have this amazing knack for throwing seeds on the ground where they actually resurrect and grow, instead of remaining dead in their grave! So maybe it won't really matter that much regarding which varieties of seeds to purchase. Maybe, because I don't know if there are different types or divisions of green thumbs.
Like one for growing flowers, and one for growing food.
Still, any experienced gardening input from you dear reader, will be much appreciated, as I journey toward growing as a gardener, and hopefully cultivate a much greener thumb.
