This is not my house. But like my Pinterest pin says, "a girl can dream, right!!"

I am looking forward to this project. I plan on getting the kids involved (I hear you laughing!). I grew up on a farm and it is a big part of who I am. Now I know that a little veggie garden is not the same"growing up on a farm" but hopefully they will at least take something away. And anyway, there is nothing better on this planet than a tomato sandwich with a juicy homegrown tomato, on soft white bread, smothered in Dukes mayonnaise with tons of salt and pepper. If your not from the South you are probably gagging but TRY IT! When tomato juice drips down your wrist you will know you have arrived at perfection
I am entertaining the idea of a wall mounted succulent garden. They are just so beautiful. I am not sure if it will happen this summer but I have the perfect spot right outside my kitchen window!

If you love flowers its easier than you think to get started. BHG and Country Living are great sources for garden plans and other plant knowledge. Get a plan and head to your garden store. The people are always so helpful and will get you on your way. I guarantee if you start with just one container you'll be addicted in no time (speaking from experience)!
Go get your hands dirty!
