When I was apartment hunting about this time last year, one of the major selling points for the apartment I chose was it's adorable little garden area. Read: Little plot of dirt, and large-ish patio area surrounded but a lattice fence and gate. When I first moved in, the aforementioned little plot of dirt was covered, and I mean COVERED, with stones. Not just normal rocks, but those little colored beads that you'd see in a diner's table vases with a faux flower stuck in em. We raked and dumped about two buckets of those bead/rock things before we found the Georgia clay.
I loooove to garden and play outside and reap the fruits of my labors, if you will. So in the past year that little plot of dirt and my L-shaped patio area have turned into my little happy place. Growing in the garden is...
- Purple Coneflowers
- Cowhorn Peppers
- Banana Peppers
- & a few flowers that I don't know the name to. Whoops.
Next year I plan to grow some tomatoes, sweet potatoes and okra, among others.
Above is my little plot of dirt. And below are some close-ups of all my favorite things in the garden.
Now I just need a couple Adirondack chairs and a cold adult beverage to make this even more perfect. (Right now I'm using folding camping chairs. Whatever works, right!?)
Hope y'all are having a wonderful Thursday! We're so close to Friday!
