I was inspired to start a garden after reading Barbara Kingsolver’s book, Animal Vegetable Miracle this winter. If you need convincing, her chapter on asparagus was particularly mesmerizing. Although Barbara had a whole farm to play with, and I live in the middle of Boston, I wanted to give it a shot.

We don’t have a lot of outdoor space, but we do have a decently sized deck. One of the big trees near us fell over during one of the winter snowstorms, which was very sad! But it did give us access to more sunlight along our south-facing railing.

And our container garden was born. Not knowing much of anything about gardening, we wanted to chronicle our first attempt. Welcome to the blog!
