I wasn't sure how much of a green thumb I would have - so - I bought all of the gear (tins and seeds) at Target. The dirt came from the bag of potting soil my roommate left on the patio.
My fearless helper and companion, Bart - he has such a green thumb, (fin?)
The seeds looked quite similar to Bart's fish food...?
Good old Bart was willing to let me borrow some of his gravel for drainage purposes... Don't worry - it was old and he was done with it!
Then I filled the tins with dirt - aren't they exciting looking?
Fast forward to this morning - There are sprouts! Maybe I am good at this gardening thing!
If this attempt is successful I plan on trying to grow more! Oh course the next time around I'll have to use cooler planting materials...
