Gardening is hard work. Successful Gardening is even harder. Some of us have a green thumb. Some of us on the other hand, try as we might, can’t grow a thing. Not a single thing.
Some have come to a level of acceptance with their black thumbs and forgo house plants and gardening all together.

Good luck Abilene! Happy… um, gardening?
