It's a rainy day here today. Thought not as quite as rainy as my new home, which has received record rainfall over the past week.
Did you miss the news about the Gulf Coast rainstorms? Here you go:
Regardless, all of this dreary weather has kept me inside where I've lovingly longed some great Southern gardening websites and County Extension Offices as I further prepare to set up a summer garden once we arrive.
Since we won't be building garden beds initially at our new home, we've resorted to container gardening – which is adaptable, portable, and easy to start. I've already sent a stack of pots with the guys on the moving truck, but once we arrive, I know I'll be scouting flea markets and second-hand-stores for some steals.
Another thing I love about container gardening is that it works well for those who don't have a “homestead” – it's easily accomplished on a rooftop, in a small yard, on an outside window sill, or even on a fire escape patio. If you've got motivation – you can grow!
All that to say, I've found a few inspiring photos of some container gardens that I'd like to share with you.
Oh what'd I'd give….
Painted wooden crates…now there's a fun idea!
