This is the story of how I created a DIY container garden with a small budget and no yard.
I love gardening. I have planted at least something most years since I was in preschool and my gardens have ranged from a couple of tomatoes in containers to an acre planted on fertile, former creek bed that grew tomato plants six feet tall!
This spring found me living in a city with a broken glass filled patch of sand my landlord calls a yard to make the property seem more appealing. It also found me with my seasonal desire to smell fresh earth while preparing the dirt for planting. So, I made the decision to get creative and not let being a grad student with nowhere to garden stop me from raising my own herbs and vegetables.
