garden dreams

by erin

This gorgeous Minnesota spring plus my 3L restlessness means I've been spending a lot of time staring out the window and making plans for summer.  One of these plans is to garden.  I have big dreams of filling my garden with delicious fruits and vegetables and to 'live off the land' all summer.  Whether I will actually succeed at this remains to be seen (I've apparently inherited a skill for killing anything green) but I'm going to try.  I also may invest in a few of these darling Anthropologie accessories, which will surely make failure a little less painful.

Draughtsman Gardening Gloves - I always wear gardening gloves because I hate touching bugs and worms.  What can I say, some things you just don't grow out of.  The design on these almost make them too cute to cover in dirt!

Landlubber Gardening Set - be the most stylish dirt-digger on the block!

Island Orb Planter - for all you container gardeners out there.

Topeng Hanging Pot - bringing the flowers to your front door, this is available in three colors.

Seed Bombs - the easiest flowers you'll ever find. Just toss the bombs into your garden and you'll have a bird, bee, and butterfly-friendly crop of wildflowers specially designed for your region!

and, my favorite...
Vintage Garden Markers made from recycled silverware! I can barely stand it!


Whether you're a seasoned green thumb or, well, green at gardening, I urge you to give it a try.  It's a great way to eat healthy and fresh, and it will save you money and grocery trips.  If you don't have the time or space to grow a garden, invest in a CSA or buy from your local farmer's market.  You definitely won't regret it!

I still need to collect some hair for you ;-)

Yes! I'm definitely intrigued to see if that works or not. It's supposed to keep bunnies out, right? Will it keep puggles out? ;)
