I do not have a garden, I know one day I will have a yard where I can go nuts and grow my own food. Been wanting to do this for a couple of reasons, 1) It's cheap! 2) You know exactly where it's coming from and 3) It seems fun and gratifying to eat the food you've grown. Then I came across this link:
66 Things You Can Grow At Home: In Containers, Without A Garden
We have a little deck just outside our livingroom, it's open and ground level, not very big (or private) but it's good enough. We can't BBQ on it but it's a nice little space to sit. I don't have the greenest thumb and in the past I have posted questions here on the blog on how to care for some of my plants. Like a proud mom, I must show off my pictures of my babies.
I've had this plant since October 2006. I started calling her Big Mama because the vines got too big. So Big Mama has had two babies.
That Bamboo plant has lasted a good while too. I'd like to get more of those, preferably a bigger one.
My two Succulents. I just got the one the left on Mother's Day. A gift to myself. :)
This is pretty amazing because growing up, we didn't have REAL plants, my mom didn't know how to care for them. So we had fake plants, fake, dirty, dust-accumulating plants. No way dude. When my parents came to visit me on Easter, it was their first time seeing my plants....they asked if they were real lol! They were impressed.
So yeah, I would like to try to grow some food, nothing too crazy but one or two just to see if I can. In addition to that, I have a blank canvas I can decorate for the rest of the Spring and Summer. I hope we can stay once our lease is up but in order for that to happen, the landlord is gonna have to make some changes I won't go into. In the meantime, here's some inspiration for my container garden...
