Conversation #83: So what do you call a thumb that is neither black nor green?

*First, real quick, my WeightWatchers update again was nonexistent on Monday.  That is probably because I had no loss and no gain.  I think I was still recovering from vacation, but I feel much better this week!

Okay, onto the real post.  What I mean by the title is that I don't kill plants anymore (I used to), but now I can't get them too bloom.  I have lovely green growing bushes with no flowers :(  I'm trying to be better with the fertilizer so I hope that helps, but I just want some pretty color in my front yard. 

Also, my garden is actually looking pretty good this year!  I feel like every year I have some crop that doesn't do well.  This year it is the spinach and lettuce.  However, I can plant those again in the fall.  I do have some nice tomatoes, strawberries, blackberries, onions, peas, green beans, cucumbers, and many herbs taking off.  My pepper plants aren't doing as well as years past, but they are still growing.  I'm so excited to be able to "harvest" them soon. 

Do you have a garden?  How do you make it grow?
