40 BEFORE 40: MY THUMB IS NOT GREEN

13. Grow a $1 plant from Target. I gave up on the last experiment, but I’m still determined to successfully grow a plant.

I KNEW MY CERAMIC SAUCER CUP WOULD COME IN HANDY!

FAILED ATTEMPT NO. 1

Per my sister, I accidentally drowned Daisy 1. Oopsy. To better my chances at growing a plant, I bought three $1 plants and carefully took care of them for weeks. They developed beautiful green leaves, and I patiently waited to see some color. Unfortunately, I forgot about the plants over the weekend when I was watching my mom and Charlie was out of town. With no one to water them, my plants died.

THREE FLOWER KITS. THREE MORE CHANCES.

LOOK AT ALL THE GREEN!

With my impatience running thin and my summer filling up with weekend trips, growing a new plant probably isn’t the best time. I’m half tempted to buy a cheap seed packet, “accidentally” fling the seeds in the backyard, and watch what happens under the care of Mother Nature. If the flowers bloomed, I would be completely thrilled and wouldn’t even care if the maintenance guys killed them during their routine lawn check.
