Over the past couple of weeks, my husband and I have been hard at work preparing our garden for the year ahead. After a rather unusual chilly winter season here in sunny Florida, some of our plants did not make it, but many of them did — so much to be thankful for 🙂
Here is a mini tour of our patio garden; we have a wide variety of foods, none of which are planted in the ground but are grown in containers of different sizes, shapes, and depths. Yes, you can grow a thriving garden out of containers, it just takes a little practice. Though our patio is quite large, it was sometimes a challenge to get containers with enough space and depth for certain foods to grow. And getting our babies the right amount of sunlight and water was something we needed to plan as well. We will share some of our tips from time to time so that you can have your own little garden, too. In light of the world economy and our current political climate, it is so important for all of us to consider our food sources and how we can make a move toward more sustainable and independent living.
Here are some of our favorites plants in our garden…so far 🙂
In the coming weeks, I will post more pics of our garden including our beautiful tomatoes and some new trees that we just planted.
