Green Thumb

Planted and am nurturing 32 tomato plants and some petunias

It is more challenging to grow tomatoes in pots than in the ground, but I hope I will do an OK job and have a great harvest to share with family and friends.

Picked Raspberries from a Bush

I got dirty picking wildflowers facing bugs and pointy thorns. Yummy treat after!

Game On/Green Thumb Flower Tournament: Week 4

As part of Connect Your Summer, the Game On and Green Thumb badges have teamed up to do a flower tournament! Only one flower can be crowned the best flower of summer, and it's up to you to decide.

Each week during Connect Your Summer, two flowers will duke it out for your votes. The flower with the most votes will continue on in the tournament. Last week, sunflowers wilted to daisies. This week, lily-of-the-valley and apple blossom go leaf to leaf!
