Dorm Room Garden
So, it has occurred to me that a few of my lovely readers are heading off to college so I decided to do a small post with more or less a college theme. This my friends is about dorm(or itty bitty apartment) gardening. I stumbled across a post on survivingcollege.com(a great resource by the way) about gardening in your dorm. I love to garden, granted, I'm not great at it however it is soothing, good for the soul and great for your kitchen. Personally I have a small garden on my back porch as well as some bits here and there on my front porch. I also keep a bunch of potted herbs and flowers in my kitchen window(which I hope have survived my absence this summer). Gardening indoors isn't as difficult as you might think. You have a plethora of options from a simple potted flower or a crawling vine to hang in your window. Terrariums are also easy to take care of and quite fun to look at. There's also this cool idea which I believe came from the good folks at Apartment Therapy, how sweet is this? This would be perfect for someone with just a little bit of outdoor space.
