  • Rooftop Garden

    September 1, 2010

    I planted a garden again this year.  I’m learning a little each year about planting vegetables and herbs in pots and every year my yield is a little higher.  This year I planted a few different kinds of tomatoes as well as basil, hot peppers, green peppers, and banana peppers.

  • Growing Vegetables

    July 26, 2009

    Last summer I discovered patio gardens.  This summer was the second year I tried my hand at growing vegetables and herbs in pots.  It was much more successful than it was last summer but I’m still learning what vegetables grow the best and how to keep things alive.  At the end of the summer I took my tomatoes, green peppers, and jalapenos to make salsa.

    The only bad part about living in our beautiful downtown apartment is that there’s no place for me to garden.This past summer I talked to our landlord and he let me have a small garden on the roof of our place.I feel like they were my little children. When I mentioned the idea to Dusty, I think he thought I would have a few small pots but little did he know I had bigger ambitions. By the end of the summer I had transplanted several plants and had a pretty big potted garden. I grew peppers, tomatoes and a few herbs.It was a successful first year considering we had so much rain and it was my first time growing a garden in pots.
