Desert Living Series:
From brown to green: A lesson in desert gardening.
Some individuals are great gardeners. Either they were born with a green thumb or they’ve learned enough about gardening to be successful at it. My idea of gardening is digging a hole and planting a shrub or flower in it; then I just expect it to survive. I have learned over the years to make sure there’s some kind of irrigation in place, as otherwise the plants won’t survive.
Most indoor plants I have though, don’t make it past a few weeks. I just can’t remember to water them on a regular basis, so I’ve given up on indoor plants altogether. Why spend the money if I can’t keep them alive? I guess I have a brown thumb since everything I plant turns brown eventually.
