So this is what our container garden looked like when I first planted the pots. I originally wanted to build beautiful big planter boxes, but instead we opted for planting the tomatoes, peppers, and lettuce this year in the (food safe) in barrels we already had (from here years ago). It was so easy!
And I have to say I am so happy that we just went ahead and planted the garden because we’ve been eating delicious and healthy lettuce and kale for a few weeks now. Soon we’ll have tomatoes and peppers, too!
I took these photos on my cell phone just to text to my mom back when we first planted the pots. The photos were never intended to be shared in a blog post since the plants were so small you can’t even see them!
Yesterday I was thinking about the sweet reader who asked me about the container garden. Was she asking me to put together a Pinterest ready photo spread of my vegetables as soon as they were lush and ready for picking, or was she just curious to see the pots and hear about the garden? I don’t know what she expected, but I know I can sometimes make things more complicated than they need to be :).
So, I told myself that if I can show my mom these photos to give her an idea of what our garden was going to look like this year, I can share them with you all for the same reason.
Even though I hope to share more from our yard this summer, at least now you can visualize it before the summer is over :).
If you don’t have much room in your yard, or you tend to make a project like planting a garden more complicated than you have time for, a container garden can be a simple solution.
