Umm do I really know what I'm doing?

So we all say, try new things.  We say get out and do something different.  We all want to add spice to our lives... or is that something we just say?  Well, instead of just saying I'm going to do.  Do it.. right?  Blog.. sure, why not... umm do I really know what I'm doing?  Haa.

So call me adventurous or call me daring.. call me what YOU will.  I'm trying two new things for the first time.  YES!!!  Instead of stepping into the lake with one foot, I'm jumping into the lake with both of my feet.  ACK!  Hold up.. wait.. let me think about this.  Ha.

OK, so two new things I'm willing to try.  First, I'm going to start a small garden on my balcony.  Yup that's right I'm going to use these brown thumbs and try to grow something.  I've always wanted to grow a small garden.  In the past I've had a couple plants: 

-Small green house plant - DECEASED
-Indoor palm tree - DECEASED
-Spider plant - started looking sick so I took it outside - DECEASED
-Cactus - DECEASED!!

So I don't have much luck, but I'm willing to try again.  Sorry, I do have to give warning "plants have been or will be hurt during the making of this blog."  Sorry everyone!  

First off, here is a picture of my plants so far: 

On the left is a tiny lemon tree.  I cheated, I got this from my love.  The middle plant is a rosemary bush.  Next to that is a rare plant called Calamansi plant.  It bears a really sour fruit which I've used in place of lemons.  It's a very popular plant in the Philippines.  To think about it.. I like sour fruit.  Haa.. maybe because I'm a sour person?  
The furthest is a basil plant that's barely hanging on.  

I took this from my parents.  Originally it was mine but it was dying.  My dad who has a green thumb took it and somewhat revived it.  But I decided that I'll do it.  My responsibility right?  With great power comes great responsibility.  Power to kill plants!!!  That's my power!!  Poor plant, my apologizes ahead of time.  

Also I inherited two more plants.

The top is a Rosemary bush.  It looks like its not getting enough water.  
The bottom is a mint plant.  Not sure what happened here.  But with the google and everyone's suggestions I hope to bring this back to life.

Well that's it!  

So here we go.. two things I'm trying today.  Blogging and gardening!  Woo hoo let the laughs, crying, madness, and everything else that comes with it, begin.  Please if you have any suggestions and advice email me... comment... link me... throw a rock against my window (remember, this a figure of speech everyone).  Let me know.. I would love to hear what you all have to say.  Thanks!!!
