Today is my first 29th birthday, so I can write about anything I want to. Hmmm….what’s it going to be?
You guessed it: my plants. I know you all come here to read about design and paint and color and MY PEPPERS so I’ll indulge you, just for a few sentences. Pictured above is the bounty that I collected this past weekend: a few tomatoes — medium red, small “purple” and tiny yellow; peppers in red, yellow, green and purple varieties; arugula; chives, parsley and basil. Needless to say, dinner last night was a Trader Joe’s Organic 3-Cheese pizza and a big salad. Combine that with the fact that my husband took me rock climbing this weekend, and you can call me a veritable earth mother. I even bought quinoa last week!
I won’t be so rude as to just leave you with rants about my garden and no actual decor nuggets, so below are a few picks of gardening items that have been helpful for my city-style balcony farm. I hope you enjoy them, and should you choose to eliminate any and all walking space from your outdoor patio this or next season, I wish you a thousand tiny tomatoes of luck!
Happy Monday to you! I’m having a very happy birthday so far!
