I'm Growing My Own Salad Bar on the Front Porch
Swiss chard, kale, rainbow chard, and spinach all fill the pots on my front porch.
I just have to step outside the door to snap off some green onions in an old pot. I even planted jalapeno peppers and tomatoes on the porch and lots of fresh herbs.
They are just now starting to germinate. I'm so excited. The pots are starting to fill in and look so pretty but the bonus is wonderful veggies you can pick and eat and they just keep growing.
Once you step off the porch... I have 12 pots scattered throughout my flower beds full of squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. The pots are old and nothing fancy some are plastic pots that came from the nursery I bought the plant in. I'm quickly running out of pots so tomorrow and this weekend I'm going on the hunt for some, and I'm not You can see here my first squash seeds are sprouting and it won't be long until it's lush and beautiful and spilling over the pot full of delicious squash that we can chop and toss into salads or fry or turn into squash boats.
I'm just getting started I have many things I'm going to grow on my porch this year.
Another perk is the pots are making my newly planted flower beds look so lush and full this year while I wait for my new bushes and plants to reach their maturity.
With all the rain we have been having it's helping everything to grow.
How about your veggie garden? Are you going to grow one this year?
I'd love to hear.
