I am not a gardener by any means, which is unfortunate because I love farmer’s markets, fresh flowers, and farm-to-table ingredients. My husband tries to get something started every few months, but I have lost all motivation because everything I plant dies. And not even a long, drawn out, “at least it lasted several months” type of way – I mean, “Wow, I didn’t know tomatoes could shrivel up like that” type of way. These 14 cute gardening hacks are fool proof projects, even for me, and a great way to start your Spring!
