Gardening 101

So I wanted an herb garden. How hard can that be?
Step 1: Gather all ingredients: pots, seeds, soil, wooden pot stand that Fred made in high school, gloves & hat, refreshing beverage, and gnome.Step 2: Put hat on & wonder if trying to grow anything at 100 degrees is a good idea.
Step 3: Wonder why you had to buy 10lbs of potting soil when you really only needed 3 cups. Think Lowe's is out to get you.
Step 4: Curse when you realize you bought the only bag of potting soil that doesn't have the proper equipment to just "slide open".
Step 5: Plant & pray.
I'll keep you posted.

Dude... good luck. I just buy the herbs already started. They still give you the satisfaction of home-grown goodness. It saves you time and sanity.

Hey Amanda,
I have a two foot plastic owl (on a pike)that is good at scaring away the birds that would eat the seeds in your garden. If you give the word, this owl can grace the edge of your herb garden, or your deck - if you have some soil to stick his pike into.... happy gardening.
Love,
Your Auntie Patsy

These all died & I threw them out last week. Waste of my effort.
