Our house didn’t come with a beautiful yard. We are literally starting from scratch. We have a big yard of gravel. Grass is a project for another year, but we needed some green in our lives, so this past weekend we got to work and built a pair of raised beds. Most of our seeds are inside germinating until sometime in May, but a few select things are out in large containers including our miniature strawberry patch which is growing in a large vintage sink we found in the trash.
You don’t have to live on a farm or in the country to grow a beautiful and sustainable garden! In my treasury today I celebrated the style of the modern urban gardener. I love the contrast of black, rich earth against the vibrancy of green. With the right tools, anyone can grow a beautiful garden anywhere.
