Our Outdoor Garden

When renting a home, finding your own outdoor space is pretty rare, so we were so happy to discover the private deck off of our new apartment. We’re so proud of the how we’ve transformed the area and made it our own space. We began completely plantless, but after finding an awesome deal for a variety of vegetable and flower seeds and a set of ten pots for $30 at a tag sale, our growing adventures began. A few weeks and a couple of additions later, we’ve managed to create a relaxing and appealing outdoor oasis that we absolutely love! Our latest purchase is a lemon tree. It has yet to produce any fruit, but {hopefully} that will come with time.

Other than a beautiful array of many types of flowers, we are also growing cantelope, eggplant, lettuce, green beans, spinach, peppers, basil, cilantro, lemongrass, lemons.

Our plants are still in the baby stages. One smart step slipped our minds when planting seeds: labeling the pots. Once they mature and we figure out what we’re growing, I’d love to get crafty and make labels like these using vintage forks.

Another feature I love about our little garden is the variety of pot styles. We decided to use what we could find. Two of my favorites are these wood crates we found laying around H’s parent’s house. I love the rustic, natural look they give.

Wish us luck on our growing adventures! And remember, we did all of that on a seven by ten foot deck, with room for a grill and patio set! Proof you don’t need to own a piece of land to grow an abundant garden.
