This past weekend, we found ourselves going from 70 degrees and sunny to 20 degrees and under a foot of snow in just under 12 hours. With Spring and Summer gardening feeling a million years away, we turned to Flickr to lift our spirits and were happily surprised when we ran across this killer kitchen garden in Montana and its month-by-month photos.

This Potager (meaning Kitchen Garden) was designed and inspired by Jennifer Bartley's Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook . Sitting in our basement loft without a lick of outdoor space to call our own, this backyard garden is not only the escape from our own nasty weather outside, but true inspiration for what hard work and a little planning can yield. This year the couple is planning to add flowers to the interior perimeter of the fencing.

Make sure you hop over to Flickr and check out the full Potager Set of photos to see this space in its full glory. Do you have any gardening plans for the upcoming months? Even though kitchen and bathroom month is wrapping up, this outdoor Montana oasis just made us too happy not to share!

Thanks NomadicLass!
