I've done a tomato plant and a strawberry plant, but this year I'm sticking to flowers and herbs. Simpler, and smaller.
It's doing nicely (much better, in fact, than my actual in-the-ground garden. Go figure)!
Petunias and Four-o-Clocks. Petunias are from Produce Junction, and Four-o-Clocks are from seed.
|Wildflower mix...when it first came up there was a ton of clover, but I weeded that out. (Pun!)|
|Basil, more wildflowers (not sprouted yet), chives, lettuce, and peas (also not sprouted). There's also mint, which is not pictured.|
It's very satisfying to see a crummy little porch (you can see the old dirty wood in some of the pictures above, it's not a lovely space) become much more appealing with a little green and effort. It's especially nice at night in the summer when I turn on those pretty lights. It gives off a very terrace-y effect for such a tiny space.
|Don't mind the equipment in the background, it belongs to my landlord.|
