I really want to grow my own food, and I considered renting a plot in a community garden. But let's be realistic, I run a business, take care of a toddler, and hardly see my husband at all. Now is just not the time.
So I set up my own patio garden, thanks to our good friend James Hubler for getting me started with this planter box. The planter box slants down so water can drain into a bucket. This is especially helpful for people who have balconies that may drip water.
Here's what I'm trying to grow in the box:
- Romaine and Red Romaine
- Marigold flowers (to help with bugs)
Then I have
- Roma tomato
- Cherry tomato
- Aloe Vera
