  1. Lovely post! My nasturtiums from seed are about the same size as yours, but in a windowbox. My daughter can’t wait to add the edible orange blossoms to cakes and salads! I have big plans for my little yard with its existing beds and borders, many of which are full of very mature spreading bushes which I’d like to slowly replace with edibles. But due to a herd of deer in my city neighborhood, most of my gardening projects beyond the safety of window boxes are on hold until the yard is fenced.

    1. Ah, yes, working with the deer regarding what to plant. It certainly makes it more tricky. I love the idea of a garden box full of nasturtiums. That will be so much fun to bake with. Thank you for sharing Tabitha. ?

  2. Working in the garden is a wonderful joy. I created my dream garden about 15 years ago. I have since moved from that home but now I live in a home where the previous owner created a fabulous garden so I have it back again. Just one bit of caution and that is – be careful of the wisteria. I had one once and it grew like mad and unless you know how to prune it or get an expert in to prune it it will eat your house literally!

  3. Deer are a huge issue here in wester NJ, too. Our veg garden is surrounded by a 7 foot fence and still the deer can jump it when they get hungry. Rabbits nibble on their favs, squirrels hide their walnuts in our planters AND chew our porch cushions. We’re looking to downsize but still ain’t want to have a little bit of space to garden. Yours looks ideal!

  4. Thank you for sharing your garden projects with us. May I ask which varieties of rambling roses you chose for your porch? I have a brand-new Olivia rose from David Austin [not rambling or climbing] that is just about to bloom. All of their roses are breathtakingly beautiful and it is so hard to choose!

  5. I plant strawberries as ground cover instead of a lawn in my tiny front yard. In winter I mulch them with a thick layer of leaves. The leaves freeze together into a mat under the snow, and when I peel that away in spring, the strawberry plants are still bright green.
