Apartment gardening

One of the things I miss about living in a house is that I don’t have a yard, so I can’t plant a garden.  I don’t really have a green thumb or anything, I just like to pretend!  I’m really lucky though, because my awesome new loft has a great patio.  I decided to use some of my patio space to plant a potted garden.  Right after I planted it, it got cold again, then it rained a lot, so I think that my plants may not make it, but I’m going to keep trying with them.  I planted a jalapeño pepper, squash, flowers, and tomatoes.  I’ve already had a huge harvest on my tomatoes as you will see in the picture!!

My tomato plan has lots of tomatoes on it. I hope the birds don’t figure it out and start eating them!! 20140524-071612-26172865.jpgMy first harvest!! I may never have to go to the grocery store again!!! lol

Lilly

We bought this Lilly last year and this is the first flower I’ve gotten from it!  We didn’t even know what it was going to look like.  It’s really pretty. Looks like there are more to come!! I can’t wait!
