A Container Gardening Blog

Nestled near the majestic Rocky Mountains at the mild altitude of 6,000 feet above sea level, a gardening climate like no other is ready for use. This unique setting offers a very temperate climate, low humidity, an average 300 days of sunshine yearly, and all the comforts of agricultural zone 6a. Sounds like a great place to get dirty and sow your seeds, right? Well sure, it all sounds wonderful until you account for the fact that you'll be confined to a small west-facing apartment with absolutely no in-ground garden access. Would you still be up for the challenge of creating a bountiful vegetable garden? You might be hesitant, but I'm going head first! In my first attempt at a container gardening blog, I'll be sharing as much know-how as I can about this unique gardening style. Check out the specifics of my gardening area below, and keep checking back for more progress and info!
