How does your garden grow?

Peter and I got bit by a bug... a gardening bug. Doesn't the idea of warm fresh tomatoes and fresh picked strawberries and snipping off green herbs spark something in everyone?

And we weren't going to let the fact that we live in a two bedroom condo with only the only outside area the patio outside our front door (though of above average size) stop us. Sure, we dream of our huge house with surrounding acreage, it's lush soil producing a bountiful harvest, but we have to start somewhere.

So, in March, we planted some seeds.
We won't be going that route again, because, as cute and hopeful looking as they are, they never got much bigger than that.

But Peter built some beautiful planter boxes and we got a good deal on some hanging baskets and we planted them anyway.
We also purchased some strawberry plants and planted some garlic plants that some friends of ours had started.

So far, our strawberry plants are the only ones that have given any fruit, but aren't they beautiful fruit? And if that isn't enough inspiration enough for you, here are some ideas about how anyone can grow anything anywhere.\


  1. So neat! I want to garden so badly! These pictures though give me some ideas on how to do it in a smaller space !

  2. Very pretty! I really like the steel tubs plants!

  3. Hi Hannah, Great idea with the planter box, so that you guys could have a little garden. Love your pretty strawberries and all the inspiration gardens :) Excited to follow you!
