Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: My favorite thing is being able to grow tomatoes, blackberries, raspberries, zucchini, blueberries, carrots, rainbow chard and herbs and then incorporate them into meals eaten right on the patio.
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: I wanted to use my patio for dinner parties as well as growing fruit and vegetables. I found a table that can seat 14, but easily folds down to give plenty of room for moving around my fruits and vegetables. The christmas lights around the canopy aren't the most attractive during the day, but they are durable and they define the dining area at night so it feels cozier. I wanted a potting bench, so I chose one on wheels that could easily be turned into a bar or serving space for food.
Thanks, Caroline, and good luck!
