Last summer I planted a small garden. It was a round garden about 4 feet by 4 feet. I planted carrots, lettuce, chamomile, and chives. I did say small. Well, time went by. The lettuce sprouted. The carrots sprouted. The chamomile sprouted. And the chives were transplanted, so they were growing well.
Well, they seemed to be doing alright for a while. Then they started to get dry, so I watered them. But not often enough. Pretty soon, all I had was a pretty pot with crunchy, brown wisps sticking out of the dirt. So I trimmed the whole thing down, hoping that the chives might sprout up again. But to no avail. I killed it. :(
I am not a gardener. I really know nothing about plants. If you could see my thumb, it is not the sightest shade of green.
So I shrugged my shoulders, and just left it. I didn't have anywhere to dump a pot of dirt. I have a couple other hanging plants that I am trying to keep alive beside the pot of dead chives. I rescued them from my local grocery store. They were on sale for like $2 and looking pretty sad. I thought I'd be able to revive them with some water and give them a good home... They are hanging in there. ha. :) And when I do water my plants (I really am trying to keep them alive) I put some water in the dead chive pot. I don't know why.. keeping hope alive, maybe?
