I may be finding my feet in the kitchen, but I worry that I have been cursed with a black thumb. Y'all remember my intense, slightly psychotic excitement about the 6 tomato plants I had growing on the patio last summer. They're all dead. Well except for one wonderfully stubborn fellow, who despite no watering or attention, squeezed out this petite beauty for us this week!
I don't know why they died -- I'm guessing the containers were too small, that the sun was just too aggressive on our patio, that they just didn't like me...
But is it too late to try again? This article has me inspired... our courtyard is all concrete but maybe we could build a raised bed? And damn the zeitgest -- the community garden has a waiting list! HELP!
