Green Thumb?

Hey Y’all!

So recently tried my hand at making some cute pots for my apartment and I think I did a pretty good job! Here’s the one I keep in my room. I actually don’t think it’s doing too hot so if y’all have any tips, I’d love to hear ’em!


It’s actually a funny story because my boyfriend and I went to Target and found these cute little starter kits to plant cucumber, tomato, strawberry, and watermelon. We failed horribly at all of these excluding the tomato plant.

Here’s how cute my tomato plant looks now!



We also found basil and cilantro at a farmer’s market and brought those home in hopes to grow them. We killed the cilantro almost immediately but the basil is still going strong!

Here’s what the basil looked like when we bought it.

You can see how nice it has grown in the tomato picture too!basil

You can also peep the tomato plant in the back from when I first bought it.

I also tried my hand at cacti and succulents.

I spent over $80 at Tonkadale, which is a local greenhouse. I don’t have any pictures of the process, sadly, but I do have my end result. I had so much fun planting all of these and I am open to suggestions on your favorite plants, soil, lamps. Anything that will help me out!
