My twitter feed is overflowing with garden beauty these days. So now for something completely different. Here's my half-dead tomato plant. Fertilizer burn?
I have a confession to make. I've killed a lot of plants in my time. Some victims, such as one extremely troublesome rose bush, deserved to die. That was clearly premeditated murder. But many, many other deaths have been involuntary plantslaughter. Disease, neglect, and pure stupidity have claimed many lives in my garden.
But that's how we learn. Today I was also reminded of my repeated failure with cilantro. Not only did I learn from that experience, but also I learned so much from visitors who read my confession on this blog.
What have YOU learned from killing a plant lately?
