Smile My Container Garden In The City

Starting in the corner... I'm really not thrilled with this summer's barrel. But at least it adds color to the gray city.


From the corner to the door - I still have my crack flowers... and if you look down near the bulk of the plants... there are four crack dill plants!


Closer look at the side garden (don't mind my boarded up window, courtesy of drunk loser)


Ok... from front to back... these are my sunflowers... no actual flowers yet


Next... from left to right back row... habanero chili, lemon drop chili, poblano chili, sunflower... in front extra poblano I'm trying to find a home for, violas, and marigolds


Broccoli another poblano that needs a home and more violas


Back row... broccoli, tomatillo, broccoli.... front row, viola, celosia, poblano, viola


Back row… poblano, broccoli, broccoli, tomatillo….. front row, coleus, black krim tomato that needs a home, viola, celosia

Dang!!! You got it going on! I have a yard and can't boast having that much going on. I got two measly pepper plants, one tomato, and about 3 basil plants. Oh, a lemon tree, and mint. Ok, maybe I have more going on than I realize, but you have done an awesome job!

Good job, and it looks like you're enjoying yourself, spryte.
One question, how are those pots not growing legs and walking away?
Good luck, and enjoy!!!
