I came across this super cute and relatable video about creating your own garden this week:

Grow Food: Appetite for Change

#ShiftCon

Back in college, I crashed with my ex in the Jungle, which didn’t have a nearby neighborhood.  Then, I flashed back to #ShiftCon where Ron Finley (of The Ron Finley Project) spoke about planting a garden in his side yard, you know that little strip of land between your fence and the sidewalk and I posted this:

 

My Garden

Start Your Own Garden | Ron Finley | AprilNoelle.comThen, I came home and really dove into my own garden. Of course, I got my start at the Dollar Tree.

Planters – $1,
Pack of seeds -$.25
All of the tools, yep, just $1

Luckily, my husband bought in too. He recycled the bottles and other plastic containers we use in the house to germinate the seeds. We started with bell peppers and basil.

We started with bell peppers, watermelon, thyme and basil. I took some of the larger plants over to my in-laws house and they didn’t do well. So we are starting all over.

 

 

I tried planting some thyme especially because my husband LOVES thyme. I’m not sure what happened or why they didn’t survive, but I couldn’t get that plant going.

But we’ve expanded to tomatoes, cucumbers, garden beans, sugar apple, soursop, okra and kale. I’ll update you in just a couple of months.

Here are 10 steps to start your own. Have you ever tried to garden? Why or why not?
