Apartment Garden

Our landlord does not seem to mind that I have dug up a 3'x12' section of his yard to put in an herb and vegetable garden (expanded from last year's 3'x6' garden bed). The borders around the house and yard are packed with gorgeous rose bushes, hydrangeas, peonies, tiger lilies, wild strawberries, tulips, and daffodils with lots of pachysandra in between.

But there was this one section left that was just full of weeds. I fixed that. Actually Adam did the major digging as a gift to my then aching back. Now in mid-June the growing green there is cherry tomatoes, collard greens, romaine lettuce, snap peas, cayenne peppers, jalapeƱos, bird peppers, Trinidad peppers, cilantro, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and chamomile.

A gardening tenent is a tenent that cares about the home they rent. If only more landlords realized that.
Garden on!
