Gardening giveaway: Calling all brown thumbs!

Are you a brown thumb? Do you swear you can't grow a thing?
Can you look at a plant and make it wilt?

Relax...we all have those days. I'll be honest and confess that I killed every single one of the seeds I started this spring when I got a little overzealous in transporting them outdoors.
But I'm trying again. And if you are too, I've got a giveaway for you.

Next week, I'm giving away the Black Thumb Seed Collection from Nature's Crossroads, a Bloomington, Ind.-based seed company. The set includes one packet each of pea, radish, lettuce, flower, and kale seeds plus detailed instructions.
You can enter these ways:
  1. Post a comment with your worst gardening mishap.
  2. Sign up for the RSS feed.
  3. Tweet about it.
  4. Blog about it.
  5. Promote it on Facebook.
The contest ends May 2 at midnight EDT, and I'll announce the winner soon after. Good luck!

My worst gardening mishap was when I first moved out with my husband at our first house and we planted this big garden and went off on vacation for a week and when we got back we realized we had forgot to have someone look over it and water it and it was all wilted and dead :(
