A Night Time Tour of the Porch Container Garden Featuring Recycled/Upcycled Furniture, Faerie Garden Tchotchke, Herbs, Perennials, and AnnualsWelcome to the Porch Garden! The porch garden is a point of pride for me. Not only is it a lovely space to enjoy during the nice weather, but I really unleash my Supreme Bargain Huntress prowess to outfit the entire things. This part of the apartment is a real point of pride for me.

Taking Care of an Urban Porch GardenI had neglected it for a while this summer. It was there in structure and there was a semblance of its potential. But it needed a good sweeping, mopping, weeding and watering plus slight rearranging and enhancing.

Unfortunately in the start of the growing season, I was overwhelmed with work, regular social life, and this online course I am taking for a certificate program -- which I don't need, I just can get it for free and being a nerd I am enriching my brain with a 6th academic credential, because women's studies and music minors, education and English majors, and a poetry graduate degree just wasn't enough. At least they're all in highly lucrative fields -- er wait. No. Opposite. Which is a perfect segue to my bohemian budget adventures for the back porch!

Plant a Few Pretty Perennials in Containers to Look Forward to Seeing Each Spring
The coral bells with the owl is from one plant purchased a while ago, maybe 5 years ago? I transplanted it from my old garden and potted it up. It keeps growing and now takes up three containers. It grows well, is one of the first to show up after the frost, and is really pretty so I'm glad I've got 3 of them now. Keep an eye on all you perennials, and when they're outgrowing their container, you can either split them and add to a new container, or move to a biger container. I prefer the splitting method, so that I can have more plants!
