Below are pictures for our tiny-new garden. Thanks to Debbie for all of her tips, we’ve started w/ a very-very small plot of winter greens.

Gardening always seemed so overwhelming, I didn’t know where to start. So, I kept putting it off.  It’s interesting b/c I come from a family of coffee growers. Finally, Keanu and I decided to try it.

We used recycled wood from our front porch to build the borders. I’ve heard it’s better to lift them up higher but for now they’re working.

I think we planted the broccoli too close together-to my surprise they’re still growing, they seem healthy.

Tomorrow I’ll post current pictures so you can see how much they’ve grown. It’s amazing to see.  I’ll also post the chair (pictured earlier). I’ve finished painting and re-upholstering the fabric.
