UMMM, I need serious green thumb help, or maybe it was just too hot this year and I planted too early. I only have beans, - bush. Mixed lettuce, and cilantro. Nothing is doing well. I need to come take a class from you or something.

Maranda said...

I wish I had a green thumb. Sadly...I kill everything. Even those plants that are "impossible to kill." Yeah...I kill them. Great job on your garden though!

Hey Sarah, I have to credit my two grandpas and my dad for passing on a lot of their garden knowledge from the time I was a little kid. Still, though, not everything I learned applies here on the West coast. I've had my fair share of brown and black plants! :) Sounds like you are doing pretty well on your own!

Hi Maranda, I'm sure you don't kill everything! If you are interested in some books, I'd recommend checking out "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew and "Lasagna Gardening" by Patricia Lanza. I've used both of them to get my gardens sarted.

Have you ever tried cooking cardoon? It's pretty tricky.

Make a Roux said...

No. Where I come from, we don't cook it. We eat it raw as a salad.
