My attempt at vertical gardening

May 8, 2013 at 11:55 am Leave a comment


So I thought I had this really great original idea. Well, in the end, not such much. But I’m giving it a try just the same.

I have a very small garden, and most of that is always in shade. I thought I’d take advantage of the one unused and sunny spot by planting a small vertical garden using a dollar-store shoe bag attached to the basement stair railing. Not growing a lot, some herbs, lots of lettuce, a few patio-variety tomato plants, strawberries, snow peas, and one tiny Thai chili plant. My biggest concern is not yield, it’s forgetting to water on a regular basis, once the novelty has worn off.

I’m already having thoughts of making a pasta and scallop dish using all those wonderful tiny tomatoes come July!

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
