Oh the gardening continues!!

This time, I planted my tomato seeds.  My grandmother had a cauldron (is there a better word?!  sounds spooky!) in the yard that had previously been used for flowers.  I emptied it (it was all dead!), added new soil, and decided it would be a perfect container for growing tomatoes. 

Container planting is really big right now and something that Nathan and I did in Togo.  Remember the Grow Box?  When you don’t have space, using boxes or bags or cauldrons works!

Nathan scattered them (nice shadow!)…

And I watered them…

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that they work out!!  And if you want more information on container planting, here’s a great link!
