I’ve always been resistant to any kind of gardening.  I just assumed that i had a black thumb, that it was difficult, that it wasn’t my thing.  It didn’t help that I am a bit OC with dirt, creepy crawly stuff and have a general fear of plants, especially exotic looking ones!

But having had to care for orchids whose flowers had long fallen, i started to wonder if i could cultivate something.  I’ve since given the dying orchids to my green-thumbed sister.  And i have chosen to try my hand at growing a few herbs and maybe a few vegetables in our balcony.

This is my journey to overcoming thoughts of man-eating plants and worms.  I am adding a little green into our home and hopefully, into our dinner.
