Container Garden

Last month we started some seedlings in hopes of having our own little garden. We chose some of Zane’s favorite vegetables—tomatoes and bell peppers. We also grew a few herbs and some daises. We started the process when it was still cold outside and I thought that we would be able to plant them as soon as the weather turned warm. It is finally looking like spring but unfortunately my little seedlings still have a couple more weeks. I’m not sure who is more impatient the boys or me. So as we were waiting to plant our seedlings, I decided to grow strawberries in a hanging basket. I will let you know the fruits of our labor. I already have buds.

 

One of the things that I miss about Texas is having a yard, although I know I complained about having to take care of the yard. The next best thing to having shrubs, trees and flower beds is a container garden. I found a container garden that is unique and true to the spirit of living in Philadelphia—a vertical garden.

Okay, I just wanted to let you know that it was this post that got the bug in my ear about hitting Calloways. I haven't planted a thing for two years now. Last year I was too ill and too exhausted with a monkey in my belly. So I decided I'd take him on his first trip to Calloways. It was a beautiful thing. :-)

Babies love plant nurseries, there's just so much to see!
Glad you and Monkey enjoyed the outing.
