I’ve been in love with the idea of gardening for a while. In an attempt to live a more healthy lifestyle and reduce (eventually eliminate) our consumption of processed foods, I’d like to start a small garden. I think it will be fun to get the kids involved. They really enjoy a meal when they help me prepare it so I’m hopeful starting a small garden will help them embrace a more health conscious lifestyle.
I’m looking into ideas for starting an organic urban garden on my tiny balcony. I’m also thinking of having my husband help me make a window box to plant some container friendly veggies in our long living room windowsill. As for the kitchen, it will be the perfect place for my long desired herb garden! I’ve taken to Pinterest for many inspirations but I wanted to reach out to those of you in my community to see if you have any tips, tricks, or suggestions. I know several of you have been gardening for a while and have a lot of experience. All ideas and suggestions are welcome! Feel free to check out my current ideas here. Don’t let the cascading window boxes fool you, I do want to grow edible plants but I can’t help but pin those breathtaking flowers!
I’d love to hear about your garden! Feel free to leave links to posts or pictures in the comments. What are your favorite urban garden plants, veggies, and herbs? Do you have any tips or tricks you’ve learned?
