Today I want to share our little “garden” with you…
… of course its not really a garden, its more of a windowsill garden, but I am quite happy with it! I am not a big gardener anyway, so this size is just right for me 😉
This year, we have two tomatoes on the one windowsill and some herbs on the other one. The tomatoes are getting bigger every day and every morning and go to the window to watch the progress 🙂
Concerning the herbs, we have basil, parsley and borage and I cant wait to use them in the kitchen.
I am glad that my husband is taking care of the herbs and the tomatoes since I am not that good with plants. I am better in the kitchen – so he is taking care of the herbs and tomatoes and I am making meals for him, using the homegrown ingredients. Thats quite a good deal, I think.
Actually, my husband is thinking about getting us a garden plot somewhere not too far from our flat, so that we can grow more of our own veggies (plus to have a place to spend quality time outside!) and I like this idea of a small garden plot somehwere. However, here in my city there are also plenty commnuity gardens where you can get a small piece of land to cultivate. I like all these different alternatives for urban gardening. I actually read on www.bauen.de that this idea of cultivating crops in the city is coming from the US but that it is getting more and more popular all around Germany – something I can definetly confirm when it comes to my city (on the picture below you can see one of the many community gardens in my city).
Do you have a garden in the city? Or on your window sill? Or are you member in a community garden project? I would love to know!
