I ran across this story from Inhabitat on my tumblr stream this morning and was inspired to start thinking about my own gardening plans this year. I started a vegetable garden for the first time four years ago and immediately fell in love with it. There is nothing better than picking your own home-grown green beans or sun-ripened tomatoes. This year, though, I am faced with a new challenge. I don't have my large garden space anymore, only a smaller space of dirt and a patio for pots, so I am re-thinking how to garden this year.
