I am now officially growing things! Outside! And not on an aerogarden (no disrespect, aerogarden — you are awesome).
On Saturday, I hauled myself over to Ginkgo Gardens (hat tip to Amanda for the recommendation!) and actually forgot my list of all the things I needed for my $50 garden. I figured I’d just wing it and probably end up okay. And I did. The ever so helpful Peter and Ginko Gardens hooked me up.
I got 3 basil plants, a tomato plant, pots for both plants, soil and a little fence for about $60. Not bad — and I didn’t have to actually build anything. When I laid out everything, it looked like this:
I got to work filling my pots with the super awesome, organic soil I purchased and once that was done, this was what everything looked like:
Finally, I added the plants, watered the seeds and then added the fence. Ta-da! I now have a very tiny garden. I’m so excited to eat fresh basil and tomatoes — and so happy to have another thing crossed off THE List!
