After much inspiration from friends like Jessi and sites like My Square Foot Garden, I decided to start a vegetable garden this year. I drooled over Jessi's homegrown veggies all last summer and I was determined to have my own.
Since Josh and I live in a rent house, starting a real garden is out of the question. Thats why we are trying to grow all of our vegetables in containers, aka-leftover flower pots and Lowes 5 gallon buckets. But first, Josh decided that I needed something to sit my containers on, so he built me a pretty table.
Then we stained it. This was the first thing Josh ever built on his own. I'm quite proud.
At the moment, I am trying to grow a few things indoors. If all of these seeds make it, I'm going to have a ton of extra plants to go around.
On the left: Mixed Lettuce
On the right: Mixed Basil
Only one little cilantro has sprouted on the bottom left. The others are still quietly sleeping.
Now for the big-boy plants:
Orange Bell Pepper
Red Bell Pepper
And some Marigolds and Alyssums for color and pest control
When I'm home, I check these babies about every 3 hours to see if there are any new developments. Alas, no harvest yet. But hopefully in a few months I'll be out here every day to find something new.
Make sure you come back to see how my container garden grows!
