I have never had my own garden before, but I’ve always aspired to. I love the idea of being as self-sufficient as possible, and I also love the idea of saving money!
This garden is a gamble for me, as one who has never attempted to grow anything. I have not a single green digit on my hand, and I have often killed potted plants that have been gifted to me. (Not on purpose, mind you!) And yet, I am determined to make these veggies and herbs grow!
My fingers are crossed… I hope this works! If not, I suppose there is always next year. ; )
I made little “pots” out of newspaper, since they are biodegradable. I got the idea off of pinterest. (Three cheers for pinterest!)
Speaking of pinterest… of course I have plans in the near future to make cute garden markers. Here are two ideas that I really love:
And… lastly, this is the garden that we are in the process of putting together. I actually like the look of the cinder blocks… they kind of have a cool industrial feel. : )
