I have been spending the past four weeks preparing to host my first container garden. Seeds have been sown and are sprouting. Wood has been gathered to construct stylish yet afordable plant boxes. Plans are underway.

Bryan has been itching to put his new tools to use. A few beers and a couple of weekends and hopefully the boxes will be properly installed and ready for transplantings.

The list of hopeful participants: brusselsprouts, eggplants, cilantro, catnip, tomatillos, tomatoes, greenbeans, pimentos, banana peppers, basil, spinach, lettuce, collards – for the edibles. Foxgloves, butterfly bushes, sunflowers, chinese lanterns and various wildflowers.

Wish us luck!
