I’m not interested in gardening.  I am, however, interested in cultivating fresh, healthy produce in my own backyard or, in this case, deck.

Those are strawberries and several varieties of tomato plants.

Those clever railing boxes contain lettuces, carrots, swiss chard, beans and spinach.  You can see that the deck gets lots of morning sunlight.  I’m a little concerned I’m going to forget to water everything, but hopefully the beautiful view of them from my kitchen window will remind me.

My mom, an expert gardener, planted everything, with some help from the little people.

Fingers crossed we can keep it up!
