Potager? Here?

I know....I know....

I said I was taking a break and since this is a rental we will live in  for a year, I really can not build a potager, raised beds, gravel paths etc.

(below my potager, last year at the home I just sold)

BUT...I do need my herbs for cooking.  And some lettuce for salads.  What is a gal to do?

Yes, these are some herbs and lettuce starts that I bought today.

If you want a little kitchen garden and can't build raised beds because you are in a rental, or your yard is too small, or your soil all clay....come back in a few days, and I will show you how to do it!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  10. I can't live without my herbs either Penny. I even have a few in a pretty urn on my lanai in the condo.

    I look forward to your raised bed. Raised beds are so kind to knees.

  11. Penny, can't wait to see what you do with the herbs. I am in an apartment for 6 months until our house is done being built so I might be able to do what you are doing!

  15. I was thinking that of all the beautiful things you added to your last house, you might miss the potager the most! I know I would!

  16. I don't have any dirt in my backyard, Penny, as it is all cement and a deck, so I grow herbs and veggies in large pots and containers. I even have a five foot fig tree in a large pot!

  19. A cooking gardener (or a gardening cook) is sure to come up with something brilliant - looking forward to your solution.

  20. How pretty those fresh herbs look. We live in a high rise and while we're about to move overseas (so I must give mine away) I usually keep an extensive container garden. I've been able to grow strawberries, tomatoes and herbs but not much else in my little terracotta pots.
