In My Garden

After the experience of the unknown that came with last year, my husband  and I talked about creating a small garden area in our backyard but didn’t have the room to do exactly what we wanted.  After much thought and planning, we decided to create a container garden on a side of our house that really wasn’t getting used for anything.

We already had beds made for plants we once had had, but they were empty and unused.  Where we once had two Lady Banks roses, we now have hanging buckets full of mint, lettuce and thyme.

We have strawberries too!

We have two patio cherry tomatoes, an organic yellow pear tomato, an early girl tomato, Japanese cucumbers, cilantro, garlic and onions.  We pretty much have a “salsa garden” and I know that we are going to have a ton of tomatoes, which I hope to make canned salsa with (fingers crossed).






This really has been an experiment for us to see what would grow well in containers and what wouldn’t do so well.  Lettuce was the challenging part, and this fall I plan to try something different.

Have you ever tried container gardening ?  I would love to hear from you if you have.

Until next time, happy gardening!
Tina
