I am NOT a green thumb at all. I would more consider myself a brown thumb. Last year David built me these boxes to plant some vegetables, but with the winter of the Artic Circle and then the Summer of Hades everything died.

I didn't want to waste all that time and effort for nothing so, we are trying again this year. It's not a big garden, but this rental house doesn't have a big yard.

This is the squash and on the far end left with the child draping over it is the cucumber plant.

These are the tomatoes and the small plant is the strawberries. I'm not sure about that one. I have not had any success the last two times I tried strawberries.

Tips, anyone?

These are the hot peppers, onions and eggplant. And another child.

And then there was this guy. I know he looks like a python in this picture, but he really was only about a foot long. If you are a mouse eating snake, then my friend, stick around. Stick around.

Has anyone else noticed a large number of spiders so far this year? I just don't want to see another tarantula in my garage because, honestly, I can't promise I will maintain my composure.

For strawberries, my Dad puts 10-10-10 on them: once in January or February, then once every two weeks until the end of the season. Hope that helps and good luck. I think we may be skipping the garden this year. I haven't even touched it yet.
