container garden!

Just wanted to share some pictures of my awesome container garden that I planted just over 2 weeks ago. It is doing really well despite the fact that it is in a narrow alley and doesn't get very many hours of sun. I guess the fact that it is direct midday sun and that it is so nice and hot here in oakland in the summer is making up for it somehow.

Here I am standing  with my newly planted herb garden

My little carrots that sprouted a few days after planting them

Zucchini, morning glories, tomatoes, and herbs

Beans on top and argula/spinach on the sides

The avacado plant I sprouted in the last weeks with a baby spider plant
Baby arugula coming up!

In the middle - the big brother avacado tree I sprouted many months ago

It is so much fun to come home every day and water my plants and see what is new -- it really does change every day!

Also, I wanted to share that I hired a really awesome woman to help me get the right supplies and plant things the right way. Her name is Asha and she works with another really awesome guy named Spira to run a business called Rhizome Urban Gardens. If you are in the bay area and want some help starting a garden or want to hire gardeners to plant and maintain it for you, I highly recommend them.
