Container Gardening

Lately I've really been looking into container gardening. Now, I've done regular gardening before and had success, but I've never done container gardening on a third floor so needless to say, I was nervous. After reading a ton of information over many weeks and asking people including those in garden centers I decided to just go for it during my spring break. 

I have no idea if it's going to be successful, but I'm really excited to do this with the kids. Lila and Brighton were so excited to help with the planting and, even though it got pretty messy, we had a great time doing it. Micah was very helpful and I don't know that I could've involved the kids without him. Thanks honey!

I'm happy with how it looks for now. We're doing tomatoes, green bell peppers, carrots, and butter crunch lettuce. We're also doing herbs, but those are inside by the kitchen window. 

Now some of you may be reading this thinking that I did it wrong, but I did the best I could with the information I had. Here's to trying something new and either failing or succeeding. Either way it will be a fun project to work on.
