On the green

I don't know if there are any consistent readers who remember when I first attempted to have a green thumb. That failed miserably as within a week the little sprouts had withered and died. Nothing coule be done to save them. Then there was my epic little tree. I truly loved it so. That tree had such great expectations...and it died when i eventually transferred it to a real pot. That was a dark time in my gardening life. it's not like i swore off trying to grow things, but i felt really discouraged. about a month ago i picked up seed packets for lettuce and basil at target. look at what happened since then:

Amazing! hopefully i'm not jinxing myself when i say these look awesome. everyday these little babies get a good dousing of water i look forward to eating these in the future.
