A couple of years ago, I experimented with vegetable gardening. Though I am a plant murderer of the first order, I successfully grew tomatoes and basil in containers for a while. Things went wrong when I tried to grow a lot of things from seed. Part of the reason for the demise of said plants was I left the newbie sprouts for a week while I was out of the country. The other reason things went wrong: I came back from my trip and there was a month’s worth of torrential rain. Plants do like water, but perhaps not that much water.
Well, I moved to Louisiana.
And then I got bold.
