green thumb?

My mom and dad have instilled in me an appreciation for yardwork. I’m not sure if it started when I was learning to mow the grass to earn my gas money for the week, or maybe it was when my mom would use weed-pulling as a form of punishment, either way…its in me now! I’ve always loved lush green grass, colorful blooms, birds, and dirt in my fingers.
This is the first year that I’ve actually planted my own garden…and I can’t wait to see how it grows. I love the idea of fresh vegetables that are inexpensive and so much better than store bought. Lets hope my green thumb is extra green this year! Here’s a few shots of what I have to look forward to…
