Tiny Gardening

While raising my kids, I lived on a large corner lot for 23 years. We had many perennial flower and organic vegetable gardens in that time. So after being forced to downsize, gardening has taken on a different look.

For the past two years, I lived in a small space with no direct access to the outdoors. No gardens. No bird feeders. No air.

But since September 2016, I pay too much rent for a gorgeous townhome with a tiny deck. Awe air.  #loveIt. #thankful #lucky

(Seriously, rents are outrageous. My mortgage for a fine place of my own would be much less than what I pay as rent.) I digress.

I’m taking full advantage of this newfound access to the outdoors. Flowers. Vegetables. Birds. Oh my.

 

Show me your gardening habit!
