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.
