I inherited a lot of things from my mom.... the brown eyes, the baking skills... but one thing that doesn't appear to have been passed down to me is her green thumb. My mom is a mad gardener. The garden at the house I grew up in is huge. Actually, I will be visiting next week so I'll have to take some pictures! But yeah, seriously huge.
And here I am, feeling amazingly accomplished that my three little herbs have been alive for two months now. But they have! I'm so excited! I'm pretty much regularly using the mint for my mojitos, the basil for my caprese, and the cilantro for my tacos.The Plaid Barn (most others I've found are pretty $$).
And that's pretty much where my green thumb stops. Everything else? Succulents. Why? Because succulents need very little tending to here in southern California climates. If I don't water them for a couple weeks? Ain't no thang.
