How a Fresh Start Kit Prompted a Kit Owner to Develop Her Green Thumb

Hi! My name is Danielle and i started trying to grow herbs when I moved to Charlotte last year. My mom always grew herbs and vegetables and we would eat what we had grown, so I wanted to do the same when I got my own place. Everything I put in a pot died and all of the plants in my back yard required too much watering. After purchasing a Pop Up Produce kit last year that had lettuce and herbs, I read the instructions and began to realize how little I knew about the plants I had tried to grow before. I grew parsley, spinach and two types of lettuce, one of which created the whole head of lettuce I posted about- all from one of the kits. Now, I have seven different herbs, a blueberry bush, vegetables, and flowers growing in my front and back yards. It all started with a little education and realizing that I could grow vegetables and herbs, with the additional know-how that started with my kit. I love cooking with all the items from my garden!
