A final report from the land of green thumb

This post brought to you by Gro-ables. All opinions are 100% mine.


It's time for another Scott's Gro-ables update – so you can see how these bad boys have been doing in the past few weeks! I've got to confess – I've been a bad plant mother. I've started moving, and so the plants went outside . . . and unfortunately, the weather has been nuts. BUT that makes this update all the more awesome. Even through a couple weeks of sub-par care, they have survived – and are growing! I'm kind of amazed.

When I discovered that I had left my sweet peppers, basil, and smooth-leaf spinach out in the sun a little too long, I was scared to death. I didn't want to do a final update with photos of dead plants (how embarrassing). I'm so pleased to show you how this "brown thumb" gal has finally turned into someone who can actually raise a few plants thanks to the Gro-ables. This has got to be exciting news for those of you who are in a similar situation – you want to raise herbs, but you aren't the best caretaker in the world :0


I don't think it's going to be long before I've got fresh herbs and veggies to eat. As I said before, I'm wanting the Salad & Herb garden that you can see here. I am excited to try some recipes in my new place! If you are a brown-thumber, you have to try these out. Here are some details about the Gro-ables:

  • They are easy to use, and designed for people who are new to gardening
  • Guaranteed to grow, when used as directed
  • Takes the guesswork out of gardening and growing your own food
  • Gro-ables simplify the gardening process so it doesn’t have to be overwhelming and confusing
  • Perfect for growing edibles – growing your own herbs and vegetables
  • Affordable ($1.29 – $1.49 per seed pod)

Now let me know, what are your favorite herb recipes? I'd love to try them when these plants are finally done!

    I love fresh pesto and I add cilantro to everything (except pesto haha) these looked they would be perfect for my brown thumb

    I’ve been anxiously following everyone’s posts about these…I have a notoriously black thumb but I love having fresh herbs. I’m so excited to try them and see how they work for me!

    How cool are those?! And these are super kid-friendly too! We’ll have to get some for our plant unit for homeschool!
