An Amateur Poem From An Amateur Gardener

Gardening is hard, everything is dead.

Why didn’t I just use starters instead?

My room is a sauna for the 70 degree soil,

for these sweet little seeds, I’ve toiled and toiled.

Cucumbers, Peppers, Tomatoes galore,

Zinnias, Marigolds, Snapdragons and more.

All the gardening pins on Pinterest I’ve read,

gardening is hard, everything is dead.

A few tips for the aspiring gardener in you:

  • Don’t let Pinterest trick you into believing you will be the amateur gardener you dream of.
  • If you decide to start a garden anyways, probably just buy starters, don’t try to turn your room into a green house.
  • No one needs 50 tomato plants, literally no one.
