So as most of you know Joe and I live on the 9Th floor of our apartment building. We love the view of beautiful Japan... but because we are in an apartment there is no yard.
Pros of not having a yard : No mowing the lawn No bugs
Con's of no Yard: No DOG :( No Garden
So we really like not having to take care of a yard, but I sure wish we could have a DOG!
Well I guess I might have to wait to get a dog, but I found a way to have my garden even though we don't have a yard. Pots, duh... I wish I would have thought about it last year. We have lettuce, snap peas, green onion and a strawberry plant. I will soon be getting a cherry tomato plant. I love gardening, it feels good to see things grow because you work to keep it alive. Another bonus of our little garden is that we have already had enough produce to pay for the plants, soil, and pots. I mean its like I am getting paid to have a garden. I think every one should plant a garden... if I can do it in my 9Th floor Japanese apartment you can do it too.
PS- I am so glad Michelle Obama planted her garden!
PPS- My main balcony doesn't get enough Sun so our garden is right out our bedroom! Yep!
