My Portable Garden

This week's weather has left me feeling hopeful and dreaming. Hopeful that warmer days are around the bend and dreaming that maybe, just maybe, I will get to garden this year.

Gardening is something that feeds my soul. 

When the Great Recession hit we had to sell our home and move north for work. We left behind a great little house and a sunny garden spot. For the last three years, not having a garden has left me feeling sort of incomplete and I am done with feeling that way. I have let a teeny yard and a strict rental agreement dictate what I can and can't do.

Well, enough is enough! This year I am going to have a garden and this is how I am going to do it.

That's right, I'm going mobile with a Portable Container Garden from Garden365™.

If we end up moving this summer, I can take the garden with me. 

If it hails as it often does where we live, I'll just roll it on into the garage.

It's the perfect solution! It may not be a half acre plot, but at least I'll be able to grow an abundance of herbs. I am beyond excited to get everything planted! Updates to come.

That looks like a wonderful gardening solution, Lexie -- what a great idea! I'm excited for you (and now itching to get my own fingers in the dirt...) :)

This is a great idea Lexie! We are preparing to plant our garden, which is a 25x30ish plot on a sunny piece of our property, not too far from our cabin but lends itself to a nice walk to and from. But I love this idea for planting some herbs and maybe salad fixin's on our deck! Thanks for the intro.
