Gardening- No green thumb here!

Filed under: Stephermendations — iamstepher @ 8:25 pm

If you have a green thumb, this post is NOT for you.I have never been any good at gardening but I have always wanted to. One obstacle is that I do not have a yard so all of my gardening aspirations must fit into a medium sized pot on a third floor balcony.

With the third floor balcony comes tons of sun and the possibility of overheating the plants. With my travel schedule comes sub-par care taking and the high possibility of under watering. This can be a deadly combination for even the most durable plants….Until today.

I think I have finally found my plant. I started of with a cute little lime tree. The lime tree LOVES water and you can’t really over water it. This is great because I can basically drown it before I go out of town and then water it again a few days later or ask the neighbor to water it for me. Look at this cute little plant.

I also planed a cilantro, basil and mint plant. I am not making any promises on these because I think they are a little more difficult to care for. We shall see!


  1. wait. so is it really going to grow limes? if so, i need one!
