A Little Green Space

 I did not do any outdoor gardening this year -- not my little patch of ground just off the deck and not in containers.

I have been taking care of my houseplants though. They have travelled back and forth with me Vermont to Florida.



This spider plant greatly appreciated being repotted.



These guys love their spot in  the sun. 




I like succulents because they are the most patient with my lack of a green thumb.



In the meantime I am getting some beautiful and delicious vegetables at the local farm market -- support hard working farmers, save myself the aggravation of fighting with thieving chipmunks and rabbits, avoid pre-packaged quantities that I don't need or can't use fast enough -- win for me all around.

I can grow most anything but I struggle with succulents for some reason.

The first two pictures didn't show. I had no idea you were taking you plants back and forth. That is a dedicated grower.
Know what you mean about a garden. I haven't planted this year but we have several local stands that provide vine ripe veggies.

I didn't do much gardening either this year... not even my hanging herbs. But I plan to buy one of those long tall outside planters and do some next year. If you follow Debbie's blog, she uses these and they look great... and are at waist height (or there-abouts) so no bending needed.
And Farmer's Markets are great. I would prefer them to buying pre-packaged too... we never use it all.

Farmers markets are a good alternative to raising your own produce. And you get to support someone else's hard work.

My plants on the balcony are about half and half. One half surviving and the other half wilting under the Texas sun.

I've got one houseplant that survives on neglect. It's the only one I've ever had that the cats leave alone. Not sure why, but I'll take it.

Farmer's markets are a great way to support local businesses and enjoy truly fresh produce.

I was keeping several house plants. When they are moved to sunny spots, they are happier.

You have beautiful house plants. And I agree with you about having too many veggies when you have a veggie garden. We always buy our veggies from the store. Always fresh and in proper quantities.

I also support my local farmers market. I'm giving up on growing things. I have a brown thumb.

Fresh veggies at this time of the year are wonderful, and the peaches are great too. Fresh Ontario corn is one of life's wonders!
