Happy hanging garden

Happy almost 4th of July! It’s been busy in Des Moines lately – I’m learning that summers here are hoppin’! So far this summer has made me really pleased with my decision to live downtown. There are tons of fun things to do here, often literally right out my front door! (More about that tomorrow.)

The weather here has been beautiful as well. I wrote about my hanging garden a few weeks ago. It’s very pleased with itself. I’d highly recommend the hanging baskets I’m using (found at Home Depot) to any of you out there who don’t have a traditional place to plant a garden. These are strapped on the exterior of a fire escape. I’ve already been enjoying peas and beans from mine, and I have some baby tomatoes and bell peppers that will soon be working their way onto my plate as well. Yum!
