Hear ye, hear ye! Community Container Garden day is finally here! Without further ado, may I present the plants we will be growing this year: ‘Sunspot’ Sunflowers, ‘Purple Petra’ Basil, Garlic Chives, ‘Spacemaster’ Cucumber, and ‘Better Bush’ Tomato. And if growing plants from seed wasn’t cheap enough for you, I’ve arranged with aHa Modern Living to sell the Life on the Balcony Community Container Garden seeds to you at 10% off. Not just the seeds, but whatever you order from aHa Modern Living with this discount code: LOTBseeds.
Full disclosure: I get nothing but the satisfaction that you saved some money if you buy your seeds from aHa Modern Living.
Here’s the deal. You don’t have to grow these five plants. There is no garden police officer that is going to come knocking on your door to check your container garden. BUT, I thought it would be so much FUN if we all could compare notes about the same plants throughout the season. I have lots of posts planned with container ideas, combination suggestions, growing tips, and of course, recipes! I really hope you’ll join in. To kick things off, I shared a guest post over on the aHa Modern Living blog with tips for seed starting success, as well as one idea for growing all five plants in a single planter box.
By the way, to make chatting about growing these plants easier, I’ve created a message board for us all to use. I hope you guys will jump on over and get the edible garden conversation started. I’m still tweaking things over there, so be on the lookout for a prettier version of the message board soon.
Let the seed sowing begin!!!
