Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: This is my unwinding space. I wait for Spring and Summer so that my kitchen garden can come alive. After a long day, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting in my patio, sipping lemonade and watch my son play in the backyard. Or just watch the birds come by and eat out of the bird feeder. All this while my darling cherub watches over my tiny Eden...
How did you create it? This is my kitchen garden in my 11 x 5 feet patio. I have placed a bistro set at one corner. The table also has my mint plant tucked underneath. I have lined the rest of the plants to the edges so I have some walking space. I have tied the tomato plants to the railing for support. On the other side, I have my nursery and my version of square foot garden. I have used cardboard boxes from Costco, lined it with a plastic bag (punched holes in both)and filled it with potting soil. All my garden tools are kept in a box in the corner. Can't wait to see my efforts come to fruition.
