The Family Gardener

As I wrote that title, instantly what comes to mind is the Minus 5 song from "Down with Wilco" called the Family Gardener.

There is a really good version of that song on Sunken Treasure that I have on my ipod. Recently, that song has reminded me of my husband who has a green thumb in our family. Preparations are underway to get our urban porch garden up and running.

He spent this weekend installing a few gutters so he can plant lettuce and onions. We also found some old containers in the garage that we will plant herbs in. We're also searching for hanging tomato planters but no one seems to have them just yet.

See that basket thing to the right of the photo? Last year, I tried planting herbs in there but was quite unsuccessful. Any ideas on something for that? I might Freecycle it.

Do you have any ideas and suggestions for us? We'd love to hear them.
