An easy way to bring a little county into your life is to start a garden. This container garden has everything you need for a delicious and healthy meal. And the best part? You can grow it in a small space like a porch or even a window ledge, which means our urban friends can enjoy this little bit of rural living right at home!
For my garden I collected an assortment of vintage tobacco tins and various galvanized buckets & watering cans from local flea markets and antique stores. Prices ranged from $2.00 to $15.00 for my containers. Then, with the help of my friends at Huron Ridge Acres, I selected an assortment of herbs, lettuces and some “Tiny Tim” tomatoes (which are small plants that have a high yield of cherry-sized fruits). I added a bit of fertilizer and water and after only a few short weeks I have enough produce to keep me in salads for the rest of the summer!
