Our (Little) Garden

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 10, 2010 @ 10:53 am In Going Green,Memory Making,Summertime | 31 Comments

[4]Many moons ago we lived in the country on two acres on the Central Coast of California. I won’t get too nostalgic except to say that we had quite the large vegetable garden each summer. And, truth be told, while I don’t miss gravel roads, well water, and septic tanks, I do miss that garden.

It’s been quite a few years since my green thumb has faded. And one of the downsides to renting is not being able to renovate the backyard the way we would if we owned it. So when Burpee [5] sent me a gift card to explore their catalog, I was on the hunt for something to get us back to a little homegrown goodness.

I chose this Bio Planter that holds up to 17 or 18 plants. It appears to be constructed of corrugated plastic. It’s super lightweight, but also seems to hold up well to the elements. We filled it with basil and tomatoes and a couple pepper plants. And we even have an itty-bitty tomato growing. Isn’t he cute?

[6]We also have something eating the basil, so I’m on a mission to figure that one out. Do slugs eat basil? Any green thumbs out there have suggestions for me?

It’s been wonderful to go out in the afternoons with my little helper, FishBoy6. He’s my self-appointed gardening assistant. And while we don’t have two acres, we’re making the most of blooming where we’re planted.

How ’bout you, Mama?
