Ok, time to face the music....I kill every vegetable/herb I try to grow. I need to just realize that this is ot part of my DNA and move on! This morning I am pondering that part of my personality that simply can't remember to water my tomatoes. They
are truly pathetic. I ordered one of those Topsy Turvy things...even got a stand and put it right outside my window to remind me...but alas..withering vines do not call me. My cucumbers are also sad...struggling to blossom amidst yellow leaves, they eek
out one tiny bloom and maybe one stubby cuc. My basil was doing well but now is shrivelled. My strawberries resemble shrunken heads. Have you seen Witchy Woman's pots outside her RV...beautiful I say to myself...what the heck is wrong with me that I can't
remember to water a plant?? Sigh....so I declare to you and myself this year, that's it, I'm done..I'm facing up to the fact that I just am not good at this and vow to not repeat this pipe dream next year. I'll buy from the farmers who know what they're
doing and sooth myself with words like..."you're good at other things"!.....anybody want to buy a topsy turvy? cheap.
