Well, I have a baby garden, but it’s a start.
If you follow me on Twitter or have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love plants – growing them, having them around, being near them, etc. At my house back in Seattle, I had a thriving garden full of flowers, herbs, and actual FOOD – tomatoes, strawberries, lemons, kale, and various kinds of lettuce… It was such a rewarding experience to nurture them and watch them grow, but also a lot of work so I learned from that and have started my deck garden in LA on the small side.
I tricked/coerced/dragged my boyfriend to go with me to Lowe’s on Sunday, and we wandered around for a minute (read: quite a few LONG ASS MINUTES, he looked v bored) as I meticulously pored over all of the small, freshly sprouted herbs and plants to take back home with us. I settled on a tomato plant (still need to put it down in a big pot), strawberries, lavender, basil, rosemary, and cilantro. YAY!!!!
While I have always been planning to re-start my garden in California, I’m psyched to have an Origami Rack gardening station out on the deck! This was gifted to me as part of a collab (#disclosure), I’ll also be showing you guys a shelf I got from them as well.
I’m obsessed because it’s light and really easy to set up, plus you can arrange it in another style so there are 3 shelves instead of hanging wall space. I used to have all my tools in a bucket and other gardening stuff spread out, so being able to keep everything together is super nice.
You can use the code “SCB15” for 15% off any Origami Rack items — they have kitchen/bar carts, utility shelving, closet stuff, and more. I was really impressed with the quality and easy setup, we’ll see how it holds up not that it’s in use and full of plants.
What about you guys – do you have plants, grow herbs, keep a garden, or are you more of the fake succulent kinda gal? Not judging, I have one in my kitchen. Talk to me in the comments about your green thumb!
