Small space gardening, cooking, and crafts

Welcome to the Garden!

So what exactly is an itsy garden? I would define it as two or more plants thriving in a place that is lovingly tended. It could be the small herb box at your kitchen window, a little patch of reclaimed land in your yard, or as is the case for me, a small balcony. Just about any sunlit spot, no matter how tiny, can become an itsy garden with a little planning and care. Do you enjoy flowers? Perhaps some edibles? Do you travel and fear the commitment of having to water your plants? With a little planning, there is truly a garden for everyone, so let's rethink our diverse spaces and bring a touch of nature into our everyday.

While Itsy Garden will indeed focus on the planning, tending and harvesting of green spaces, this site is intended to be a year-round celebration of simple pleasures. It is my hope that the recipes, crafts and adventure articles will bring an equal amount of enjoyment and inspiration, especially through the dark days of winter. Should you have questions or ideas for an article, please post them in the comments! I am always up for a good challenge.

Thank you for visiting my garden and I can't wait to hear about the spaces you create!

    Thank you for the ideas! I have just a little bit of space for the garden because the GIANT dogs take up most of the backyard space and they will probably dig up the garden. I needed some inspiration in order to avoid the traps in life. So many times I have wanted to make a good, healthy meal at home and was missing ONE LITTLE THING, like a mint leaf, or a tomato, and didn't want to get in the car and go to the store. Besides, if I'm in the car, I might as well go to In N Out burger instead of cooking, right? (diary of former skinny girl who reached the age of 40)

    I'll let you know how it turns out!

    I can't wait to see what you do with what little area your fur babies give you! =D Herbs are especially rewarding in small areas, but if you have space, you just can't beat a fresh tomato.

    Not only will I be writing articles about how to do the rain gutter planters like I have, but also offer some ideas for those lucky enough to have some yard space. Though I can't guarantee that you'll be able to avoid In N Out all of the time, I'm sure we can wage a really good fight. =D
