Are you an Innie or an Outtie

I have a confession to make.  For all of my gardening with flowers, and bushes, and growing vegetables, I really can not keep an indoor plant alive!  It baffles me that I can kill an indoor plant, or bring it near the brink of death, in less than 2 weeks.  They just don't like my light, or my over- or under-watering, or my hovering as they start to shrivel.  Whatever the reason, I do not have a green thumb when it comes to indoor plants.  However, my sister swears she does not have a green thumb, but can keep an indoor cyclamen alive for multiple years...although I may have killed it by just touching it this past weekend!  That leads me to believe that when it comes to a green thumb, we all have one.  We just need to realize if we're an innie or an outtie.  I'm not talking about belly-buttons.  I'm referring to an indoor or outdoor green thumb.  If you're lucky enough to have two green thumbs, you get a bonus star in my book!  On the other hand, if you've often considered yourself to have been born without a green thumb, maybe you're just gardening on the wrong side of the window.  Try the other side and you might just start to see your thumb turn green!  Give it a shot! 


  1. Umm...what happens if I'm not really either?! I do "okay" with both in and out, but have never been great and am looking forward to learning more as I read your blog :)

    1. Sounds like you have 2 green thumbs then that just need a little practice. Lucky you! : )
