Christiane's Container Garden Courtyard

My Great Outdoors

Name: Christiane
Location: Cologne, Germany

This is our second summer in our apartment with this 20 square meter yard and we are slowly learning what to grow and what will not survive. There is not much fertile soil in the flower beds, due to the vine and its roots, so we are mostly using pots.

We grow some herbs and a few vegetables but the use the yard mainly as a playground for our 15month-old daughter. In the summer it feels like an extra room to our apartment and we love eating outside and having a barbecue! I would still like to improve the floor, which at the moment is just raw concrete, but haven't decided what to do, suggestions are welcome! I like the 'wild' and overgrown look and am exited to see what we will be harvesting this summer!

Thanks Christiane!
