I wish I had a green thumb. Really. I have killed every single plant I've ever had in the house. I am okay with outside plants...but they have to need little maintenance, because I am just not an outdoors or nature lover for the most part. I want to enjoy the beauty and the benefits, but I just don't want to be outside long enough to do the work. Planted a square foot garden last year in Raised Beds. I got a few zucchinis and yellow squash from it. A few snap peas, a couple carrots. Lots of radishes and lettuce. I planted peppers, pumpkins, cucumbers, and green beans but I wasn't able to get any fruit from the plants. I set up Compost Bins, and really went all out. It was fun, but I discovered that I do not like dealing with the bugs! At all. I had a feeling that would happen before I even started, but I had to try.
So I'm thinking about edible landscaping and container gardening and maybe even some indoors too. I'd love to just have a space in my kitchen for growing fresh veggies and herbs. A mini greenhouse or something. Check out this Mushroom Garden, how neat is that? Have you had any luck growing edibles in your home?
