Vegetable Garden 2012
Years ago when we lived in our small two bedroom apartment I would fill containers on our small balcony with tomato and cucumber plants and they would happily grow and give us a small bounty of fresh goodness to feast on. Since we've been in our townhouse I haven't felt the urge to maintain a patio garden. Last year I read on our city's community webpage that I could rent a 20x30 plot to sow a garden. I wasn't ready then but this year I decided to take the plunge.
Because I'm so type A I wanted to plan my garden down to the last row. One of the awesome things about being married to a techie is that I have learned to incorporate apps into my mundane tasks. I went searching on the Apple App Store and found Garden Plan Pro which has allowed me to lay out my garden beautifully. It tells me which plants to plant next to each other in the same "bed" & looks really pretty which as I designer I LOVE :)
