Over the past 7 years, gardening has become my number one most favorite hobby. I inherited my green thumb from my Momma, who also loved getting her hands dirty and watching things grow. My thumb started out brown, and while it’s still far from a pure Kelly green, the shade gets a little brighter with each…
