I am starting my new garden.

I've moved from 7 country acres and a dozen raised veggie beds plus strawberries, asparagus and blueberries, to a town apartment and had to give it all up.
Or so I thought.
Here I can have a container garden if I desire....and yes, I desire.
To start, I got myself my first African violet for my apt. windowsill.

As you can see from my photo, there are many new buds coming soon.   I plan to get a few more of these violets for my apt.
For my outdoor container garden on the back garden patio facing the river, I plan on a couple of tomato plants and a short pot for about 4 lettuce plants.  I can cut those back to an inch and they will regrow into new heads for more fresh salads.
Let's see if this former gardener can control the number of containers she gets to tend this summer.
I'm getting antsy to get started but in Maine, that means buying potted veggies sometime in April so I have lots of time ahead of me to dream.

In the meantime, Penny has fun trotting thru the snow.
Look at the smile on her face.
Have a good day.
