Gutter garden spring 2014

Gutter garden spring 2014

Around a week ago, I came across the world of gutter gardens while searching online for container garden ideas.  I knew  that if we were going to have a garden, it needed to be low maintenance and out of reach of or dog and other roaming animals (devil rabbits!).  I also don’t have the need to grow anything extravagant.   Just the basic leafy greens and strawberries.  So when I saw a Lowe’s YouTube video on gutter gardening, I knew this would be perfect!

I planted my strawberry plants in the top gutter and lettuce and kale seeds in the bottom two.  I’m looking forward to being able to pick fresh strawberries and leafy greens right from our deck!  How cool is that!

I’ve also bought a couple buckets that will be used to plant my tomato plants in; easy-peazy!
