Yes, I absolutely believe that gardening is an art! Normally, I am really, horribly bad at gardening! Seriously, I can not even keep a simple house plant alive.  Recently, Miss O and Miss B expressed a keen interest in gardening.  So, over Easter weekend my husband, our girls and I went to Home Depot and did some research on gardening.  We don't have a lot of space to plant a proper garden - so we decided to start with a couple of things in pots.  We got strawberries and Brussels sprouts.  Guess what, it's working - the plants are actually blooming! To say that my family is thrilled is quite the understatement! I hope these plants do indeed produce fruit and vegetables.

Brussels sprouts

Pretty flowers that Miss O planted with her Girl Scout troop.  I have no idea what they are - told you I stink at gardening.

Well, I really don't have the greenest thumb around either. I'm taking pictures and posting approximately once, every other year, when my one african violet actually produces even so much as one little blossom!! I live in an apartment building where there is NO space for planting but a couple of small window sills, so I actually admire the space you've got for potted plants. Yours look great so far, and I think it's all the more fun when kids help out caring for them!... Have a great weekend! ~tina
