It’s true, we have a pretty big yard – so we have the space for a full garden – but Mr. Nest wants to re-grade the yard sometime this summer (hopefully) so a container garden just makes more sense for us this year. Plus, it’ll be small this year – I’m new to gardening, and Mr. Nest has never done it on his own (his Mom has always had a big garden, though she doesn’t grow as much anymore now that they’re empty-nesters.)
So here’s a picture tour of our container garden. 🙂
Our “windowbox” planters. Spinach and Sweet Basil on top, and Salad Bowl Lettuce on the bottom. We got brackets to hang them on the outside of the deck railing too, but the planters are too heavy! Oops.
and the lonely strawberries that haven’t been planted yet. There are little green ones on there! I’m looking forward to the first harvest. Omnomnom
and last, but not least, Columbine flowers that went on my front stoop – replacing some of the hideous stuff the previous owners of our house planted. It’s a minor improvement, but every little bit helps!
