Months ago, I read a story in the NY Times about a guy from the University of Maryland who'd started planting salad greens and herbs in a homemade table. I was so enchanted that I asked my honey to make one for me.
She laughed out loud Okay, so it would have been illegal to put one out on my fire escape in New York, but it seemed like such a seductively simple and appealing organic container-gardening strategy!
We'll, we've moved, and now we have a modest little outdoor patch. Last night I dragged honey to Big Box Hardware and bought the materials (for $75, including seeds and two big bags of organic potting soil).
I didn't tell her where we were headed until we got there Now she'll have to help me!!
Has anybody tried this? Have any tips for me?
I'll be sure to post pics and updates.
