So I finally took the first steps to building a backyard garden. Albeit they are baby steps. We bought 2 sweet basil plants. For now they are hanging out in their default plastic planters and with their original nutrient rich soil. I have big plans from these small beginnings.
Tulips from the Hubz
- Find [kid friendly] planter(s) with good drainage
- Buy more herbs (cilantro and dill for sure) and tomato seedlings
- Move all plants to their new home planters (which I heard is a process)
For now the plants are sitting on our coffee table because the family room has the most light in the house. I’ve been monitoring the soil and the overall “hefty-ness” of the planter to judge how much water is needed (at the advice of the lady in the Lowes garden centre).
