GROW!






















I am so excited!  After talking and talking (and talking and talking), about it, I finally DID it!  My minuscule garden has taken off - the objective, other than the obvious, (delicious, home-grown vegetables), is to prove to my husband that I can keep a garden alive and thriving and once that is proven, I will then earn my right to a real, proper full-sized, mega garden.  For now, I am as happy as a blue jay with my start.  A pair of organic heirloom tomatoes,(black zebra and juane flamme), two types of organic basil, and one sweet little strawberry plant.  I'm planning to buy more herbs and perhaps an artichoke plant, but I am simply thrilled to get my hands dirty and sit and watch my little plantings GROW!

Oh. This is so nice! The photography is nice as well. Thanks for sharing. I have a garden too and I grow vegetables and some herbs as well. I use them for cooking. Kinda like what you are doing.

Call your local nursery or hardware store. It's a wine barrel, ask around, you should pay about $40 - $50. It's really deep and would use a TON of soil, so I filled it up about 1/2 way with mulch we have and then the rest with organic soil and the top 2 inches with organic compost which I then mixed in to through the top soil. : )

Alright! Love it!

And thanks for the tip about the barrel. I was looking for something to grow tomatoes in...

Oh, and thanks for the tip about Chinois too! Glad you got that off your chest. Sounds delicious... :)
