Since starting the Grow Your Own Food Challenge, my little container garden situation has expanded into…well….a not-so-little situation. When I first started out, I had just a few potted herbs and veggies on the front porch, and my shower bucket was providing enough water to keep everything hydrated.
Since then, I’ve caught some kind of gardening bug! I dug in with my husband and built some raised beds out back and added a few pots on the back porch, too. The shower bucket is still helping, but it definitely can’t provide enough water for all of my plants, so we’re using the hose, too. We’re going to get the rain barrels set up again soon, but since it involves cutting into the gutters, we might wait until my father-in-law visits to tackle that project. I promise to follow them around with my camera and annoy them with questions about that when it happens!
In the meantime, I’m super happy with my expanded garden and thought it would be fun to share it with you, slideshow style! If you have photos of your own food gardens, I’d love to see them! You can share links to photos here or send them via email to becky AT importantmedia DOT org.
