Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow???

I love watching things grow. Children, puppies, plants and love. Sappy sounding I know, but watching these things grow is so full of promise and hope. Anything is possible. And yes, I'm definitely not contrary :)

On the plant front, I've always had it in my head that I don't have a green thumb. So in other words, absolutely no talent for growing things and keeping them alive. It's quite an assumption considering I've never really attempted to grow anything much.

For me though, there's a romantic, almost comforting thought about getting my hands dirty and tending to a little garden. Genetically, I'm quite blessed...as well as having great cooks on my side, I also have talented gardeners...so I figure I just have to channel their guidance.

So today, I decided to plant something. I've started small...

Little garden

In my little Tuscan pot I have planted fancy lettuce, rocket and apple cucumbers.

I will keep you updated on the progress...

  1. Sounds like a great start. Our garden isn't in the best state right now but I meant to say to feel free to use anything in it. The lettuce and spinach should still be ok, and the shallots and parsley....use as much as you like :)
