One of my New Year’s resolutions was to grow my own food in my backyard. You may save money and lessen your carbon footprint by growing your own food. It seemed like a no-brainer to me!
Unfortunately, gardening is more difficult than I anticipated. This year, my garden was a complete failure. This is a list of five of my most spectacular gardening mishaps, so hopefully, you can avoid them!
I am not a botanist. As a result, it’s not clear to me why I assumed I’d be able to identify each plant once it had sprouted. I didn’t do it. Cucumber or zucchini, is that what it looks like? The only way I’ll know for sure is if and when it bears. Is that jasmine or some sort of weed growing over there? I don’t have the foggiest idea!
Actually, that’s one of the reasons I didn’t weed… Weird or not, I didn’t know if it was something I had planted on purpose! In fact, I’m not sure if I planted melons or pumpkins this year. To be fair to myself, I should have labeled the regions I was working in, even if they were only pumpkins. I would have known more about what a weed was and what each vegetable plant was if you had taught me that.
