Garten Is Garden
Silke and I have started a DIY container garden project on our back deck.
FYI – The German spelling for ‘Garden’ is ‘Garten’.
Our container garden is sitting on a garden planter and was motivated by a magazine article I saw in an issue of ‘Home and Garden’. It seemed simple to get started and it was!
We don’t have a garden spot in the yard, as a matter of fact there are pine trees in our back yard that would kill anything under them, so this raised DIY container garden seemed like the way to go.
DIY Spring Container Garden
Our containers contain the following produce: Lettuce, Peppers, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peas, Squash, a wagon of herbs, and a mixed assortment of flowers.
It’s only May and we have the seeds sprouting already!
As long as the weather cooperates we should be set for a decent crop. We’ll update this blog as the summer goes by.
Do you have a container garden story to share? We would love to hear it and could use some pointers from a more seasoned gardener.

Here is an update for our DIY Garden Project. All of the plants are looking very healthy and they are starting to bud. We can even see the first little tomatoes.
