After being attacked by what may be one of the world’s nastiest bugs, I’m happy to report that I’m on the mend – AND – ever so grateful for good health!
I wish I could say that all of my down time wasn’t wasted – that I had used that time to write. But nothing could be further from the truth. My body hurt. My head hurt. All I wanted to do was sleep. And that’s pretty much what I did – from the couch to my bed. I didn’t realize one person could sleep so much…
Needless to say, when Saturday rolled around and the afternoon high topped out in the upper 60’s, I took advantage of feeling better. I started my first container garden. In the past, I’ve always planted the old fashioned way – tilling the soil, preparing the rows, etc. Containers were for city folk…
Or are they?
Having fresh vegetables is important to me – especially ones that haven’t been sprayed with boo-koos of pesticides.
Finding time to prepare the garden, work my job, and write… There just wasn’t enough time in the day.
So, I’ve decided to give this a try.
Not sure how this is going to turn out but hoping I’m working smarter (not harder)! Keep your fingers crossed – because I don’t necessarily have the greenest thumb.

Best of luck Deb! You’ll have great fun whatever the results we’re sure…
I’ve been planting in pots for years-I HATE TO WEED. Even my flowers are in pots and then i take the weed wacker to the ground around them-no bending for me-saves my back. good luck in your endeavors-nothing as tasty as fresh tomatoes.
I stumbled across this post while looking for gardening blogs. This crisp, honest, lighthearted post made me smile.
I have been growing stuff in containers (not necessarily food) for about a year, and it has served me very well. I am an amateur gardener myself, but I’ve felt that just a bit of caution and care goes a long way in keeping containers thriving with life.
I hope you recover soon, and that your container food experiments are successful 🙂
