My small vertical garden, with lettuce and peas, as well as a tomato plant that I picked up for free and subsequently killed.
I’m working on growing a green thumb and have a long way to go. The Woolly Pockets are helping me with that because it’s a small garden that is easier to manage. Learning a few gardening basics in a small garden doesn’t feel as overwhelming as a big garden plot.
When I think about gardening or growing food, my grandparents immediately come to mind. As a kid, I noticed that they were always outside in their garden. And when I was really small, I would sit in a tiny red cart and my grandpa Otto would pull me around the garden. It’s funny how the little things, like starting a vertical garden, can bring up so many memories.
