Gardening is FUN!
I encourage everyone to try new things. If you haven’t tried to grow plants – indoors or outside – it’s time to start!
I created this video for you to see how I garden all year long. At the time of this writing (April) I’m able to eat onions, broccoli, swiss chard, kale, lettuce, and carrots!
I like to start with seeds but maybe you prefer waiting until it’s warmer when you can buy seedlings from your local garden center.
Why do I love gardening so much?
I love seeing GROWTH. Watching plants grow is simply miraculous to me. In addition, I learn something new every year so I am seeing my own personal growth, as well.
I love eating healthy and knowing where my food comes from! I love being self-reliant and I don’t have to go to the grocery store very often.
I love sharing my bounty and knowledge with family and friends. You know how it is when you have a passion for something! It’s so important to be purpose-driven!
You’ll see my youngest grandson at the end of this video. He helps me every year and this year he’s going to start his own garden box in my yard. What could be a healthier legacy for me to share with future generations!

Nice video Kathryn! I’ve gardened for many years. The deer have won many times – especially at our former home backing up to the Kopf reservation. Now we have a smaller patio that faces North – but I’m a huge fan of container gardening with flowers and this year I’m going to retry potted herbs for cooking.
Oh those deer can be a problem! For me, it’s the squirrels and chipmunks! I love the idea of an herb garden in pots!
Great Gardens! Now that I live in a 3rd floor walk up I’m thinking about how I want to garden. I have balconies on the the north and south sides). My concern is with my neighbors balconies below me and not dripping on them. Any thoughts?
The southern balcony will be great for you! I think you’ll find that if you use a narrow-nozzle watering can with a tray underneath your plants you’ll prevent dripping to the balcony below!
Enjoyed your video am am very impressed with all the outdoor boxes you have going!!!
So glad you enjoyed the video! Thank you for watching!
Loved this, Kathryn! I am more of a flower gardener but you have inspired me! Thanks, Mary
The highest compliment is knowing that I’ve inspired someone! Happy gardening!
Your garden is beautiful! What a lot of good ideas for indoor planting for the winter. My attempts at that have not been successful without heat and grow lights. Thanks for sharing.
Without a big southern window, it’s hard to get veggies growing without lights and a head pad! But it IS rewarding!
