This will be the third year for Robbie's and my outdoor container garden, and I am nerd-level excited about it you guys. When we did our first garden in 2011, neither of us had any idea what we were doing. At all. We don't have a sprawling yard or big country plot - just a little balcony deck and some patches of grass beneath it. Somehow, it actually worked, and we loved it so much that we even built raised beds last year in addition to our pots.
It's been a cold spring this time around, so nothing is planted outside quite yet (other than the garlic we planted last fall). But our house has been covered in seedlings and tiny plants for the last couple of months, and I've been finding myself browsing gardening websites and Pinterest (I even started a new plants + gardening board) on a pretty regular basis. Our lack of outdoor space hasn't stopped me from feeling ridiculously inspired by some of the gardens I've come across. I'm actually not nearly as impressed by big, overly landscaped spaces as I am by creatively constructed, often simple gardens and plantscapes that have clearly been grown and designed with love. I know that many of my readers love gardening as well, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you, in hopes that they bring you some growing inspiration as well. I'd also love to hear about your gardening plans this year!
