We're so sorry.

Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology.

Dear Plants,

We're so sorry we couldn't keep you alive. I guess we didn't understand what it was you needed. We thought all those days of pouring rain during the entire month of April would keep you green and healthy. Maybe you needed better top soil, or more fertilizer, or perhaps some friendly conversation. We truly apologize for our failures as new gardeners.

For those of you still hanging in there, we're doing our best, and we hope you can forgive us for any more mistakes we make along the way.

Sarah & Stewart



  1. Poor plants....I am a rubbish gardener, nothing stays alive for long.

  2. I have killed many plants...I feel your pain!

  3. Ha! This made me husband and I are notorious for killing our plants as well. I always thought I would be a person with a big garden but after a few years of dead plants it looks like I will be shopping for my greens at the farmers market. :)

  4. Yah plants, tricky little suckers, i have been known to kill a few plants in my day, i just dont have a green thumb, sigh! i wanna hear about your vegas weekend

  5. Wait, I didn't know plants were able to die in Washington?!! Ha ha. Lovely blog! I was lookin around and you two are a cute couple!! And I live me some good recipes do I can't wait to try some of those out... Especially those pumpkin protein bars!!

    1. Brittany - I know, right!? They got plenty of water and sun, what else could they possibly need? Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you like the pumpkin protein bars, they are one of my favorite snacks!

  6. Oh dear - those are some sad little plants. A lot of ours look like those too though. I don't get it...water + sunshine is supposed to work, right? I can keep a toddler and dog alive but a houseplant? Nope. ;)

  7. I can relate to this so much, because I always feel so awful when I kill a plant! Good luck next time! Gardening does just take practice.


Talk to me, Goose!
