Anyone who has ever held a seed or living plant and made the decision to make it grow can consider themselves a gardener. There is no firm definition of what size, shape, color, or texture a garden is. People who consider themselves gardeners often share only their successes, rarely their failures. If you know someone that you consider to have a green thumb, you are mistaken. Green thumbs are nothing more than trial and error, knowledge, and luck. You can grow a garden. And, you'll find that for every plant that is a success you will find yourself wanting to put in two more. It becomes almost an addiction to test the limits of what is possible to grow within your space... or even your neighbor's, if you can convince them.
