My Little Garden

We love our house, we do. But, we would love it even more if we had our own back yard. We are currently waiting for the land across the street to be landscaped into a 25-acre park which will be A-MAZ-ING when it gets finished (whenever that is)! For now, we decided to get creative and really use our balcony space. ***Note: It was really cloudy the day I took these pictures. Usually, the mountains are VERY clear from our balcony, which I why we love to be out there. :)

My pretty petunias.
Where we hang out. Notice Sofia's water bucket. She likes to help water the flowers. :)

Candle lantern turned potter! This is my favorite gardening design.
Last, but not least, the Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant! We already have about 12 tomatoes!

You know, Tom had a great idea to try the whole upside down tomato planting last summer. It was a complete failure! I'm glad to see it's working for you though! Clearly we did something wrong along the way because we never saw even one tomato grow!! Love the flowers, too :)

Your petunias look great and I love how relaxing it looks on your deck! I can just imagine the three of you out there and Chris enjoying a breath of fresh air and Sofia watering the plants. What a great visual :-)

p.s. I'm jealous of your home grown tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes are my fave!!

Meg, your green thumb is showing! Bonus with the balcony garden: the rabbits can't hack your plants in half like they are doing to my kitchen garden. Sofia can help water my pots anytime! I have a little pitcher for her ready to go. I'm looking forward to helping with your first "ground-floor" garden. We'll have to find a nice shady spot for a hammock.
