Proudest DIY

Sara admits she doesn’t have any sort of green thumb—most plants actually fear her when she walks by them. However, she recently turned a corner and learned how to start a small container garden on her back patio and grew the most beautiful red geraniums. The key to success was to start small and set reminders for watering.
