A few weeks ago we got our started our container using Miracle-Gro Gro-Ables. Gro-ables are seed pods that provide an ideal growing environment for your seed. Each ready-to-plant seed pod contains growing materials, plant food and a specially selected seed from one of 17 different varieties including basil, spinach, cilantro, dill, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes and more. All you need to do is plant your seed, water and enjoy watching it grow into something greater. Easy right?
I’ve had an old palette on my deck for over a year. One that I made my husband pull off the side of the roadside to get because I HAD to have it. I had grand visions of taking it apart and putting it back together again then distress for a super cool photo background. Ehem. Clearly that never happened. And I’m okay with that because we turned it into something even better.
My parents have had a garden for as many years as I can remember. I can tell you firsthand that planting/tending a garden is hard work but you will never taste a vegetable as good as one you’ve grown yourself. Period. It’s why they do it. Year after year. I have had a container garden for the past few years with herbs, cherry tomatoes, peppers and small vegetables. This year we’ve decided to take the plunge and expand our garden to include raised beds. I can’t tell you how excited I am. I am finally a farmer!

Spring has sprung and that means it’s time to start planting! For me, planting consists of an herb and vegetable garden. I have a small container garden that I house on my deck with my herbs and small breed tomatoes and then a larger raised bed garden further back into my yard.
If you don’t have room for a full on raised bed garden, container gardening is a fantastic option. I love having my cherry and roma tomatoes as well as all of my herbs right at my fingertips to snip and pick when I’m in the middle of cooking. It’s doesn’t get much fresher than that.
