Last summer was the first summer that I really tried at and stuck with gardening (in a long line of many failed attempts). Ironically, it was the also during a time when we lived in the smallest space we’ve ever been in. We were in a 1,200 square foot apartment with virtually no outdoor area. I had a tomato plant, pepper plant, and a few herb plants that grew pretty successfully on our tiny patio in containers.
Do you know what that experience taught me? Gardening really can work (and you really can enjoy it) no matter where you are. The whole experience of raising your own plants was so therapeutic. Not only are you nurturing something from the very early stages of its life, but you get to reap the rewards of vegetable plants with home-grown fruits and veggies. Added bonuses: its beautiful and economical too!
This year, we have a little bit more space, so we’re trying out a few new tomato plants! I’m excited about the different varieties available from Burpee Home Gardens. They offer dozens of different varieties of vegetables and herbs…everything from Pinot Noir Peppers to Hi-Ho Silver Thyme. Each plant has a unique look and taste to fit any palette!
