V - Grow Vegetables
I do not have a green thumb. I'll be honest about that. Plus it is so darn hot here in the summer I hate to go outside and sweat. So growing vegetables is pretty far-fetched for me to do. But I would love to have homegrown tomatoes in the summer.
A few years ago we succombed to the Topsy Turvy craze. One thing they didn't tell you was how heavy it got with all the wet dirt in it. We had a heck of a time keeping it hanging. But then we were successful in getting the tomato plant to grow.
And we even got tomatoes to start growing.
But then I overwatered (at least that's what I think happened) and the plant withered and died before I got a ripe tomato. So my experiment failed. :(
I am however successful at growing basil. We usually have three plants so we can have fresh basil all summer.
Last summer we even did thyme and it grew until I was gone for a couple of weeks.
So I guess I'll stick with herbs until I move to a lower temperature summer place.
