Our little "garden"

Today I want to share our little "garden" with you...

... of course its not really a garden, its more of a windowsill garden, but I am quite happy with it! I am not a big gardener anyway, so this size is just right for me ;) 

This year, we have two tomatoes on the one windowsill and some herbs on the other one. The tomatoes are getting bigger every day and every morning and go to the window to watch the progress :) 

Concerning the herbs, we have basil, parsley and borage and I cant wait to use them in the kitchen. 

I am glad that my husband is taking care of the herbs and the tomatoes since I am not that good with plants. I am better in the kitchen - so he is taking care of the herbs and tomatoes and I am making meals for him, using the homegrown ingredients. Thats quite a good deal, I think.

Actually, my husband is thinking about getting us a garden plot somewhere not too far from our flat, so that we can grow more of our own veggies (plus to have a place to spend quality time outside!) and I like this idea of a small garden plot somehwere. However, here in my city there are also plenty commnuity gardens where you can get a small piece of land to cultivate. I like all these different alternatives for urban gardening. I actually read on that this idea of cultivating crops in the city is coming from the US but that it is getting more and more popular all around Germany - something I can definetly confirm when it comes to my city (on the picture below you can see one of the many community gardens in my city). 

Do you have a garden in the city? Or on your window sill? Or are you member in a community garden project? I would love to know!

  3. I love it! Windowsill gardens are super cute.

  4. Yay! Gardens are great. Watching Nature at work is magical. Your plants are doing better than mine; I'm new at this and my first attempt isn't going well. I support your hubby's decision to find a bigger spot. He'll be happy and you'll make nice meals. And I'll come over for dinner! :-)

  5. this garden is so cute.

  6. Always love reading your perspective and story sweetie!! so refreshing ♥

  7. Loving your garden! I always wanted to have my own garden x


  8. Liebe Larissa,
    da wir auf dem Land leben, gehört zu unserem Haus ein eigener Garten. Allerdings muss ich gestehen, dass Garteln zu meinen eher weniger geringen Talenten zählt :) Immerhin haben wir Schnittlauch und noch ein paar andere Kräuter - und einen Apfelbaum. Dagegen finde ich es klasse, was Du alles heranzüchtest, vor allem weil ich davon überzeugt bin, dass nichts an Obst und Gemüse aus dem eigenen Garten herankommt. Hoffentlich wird Euer Traum vom Schrebergarten wahr!
    Alles Liebe und noch ein schönes Wochenende von Rena

  9. nice, it's pretty
    have a great week!

  10. Geht mir auch so - ich bin gern draußen, aber zum Gärtnern fehlt mir dann doch die Lust...


  11. how cute, i would love to have a little garden once i have time :)

  12. To have tomatoes on the one windowsill is really great, but I'm not really sure you will get heavy harvest. Anyway, it's really interesting to have such a little garden on your windowsill:)
    Would be really great if you share the results with us after a month or more;)
    I personally have a summer house and my mom grows tomatoes there, she is really good at growing tomatoes:)

  13. Sounds great, Larissa! I'm not that good with plants either! Haha! ;-)


  14. This is really lovely - I will definitely get a little garden of my own if I ever rent/own somewhere with a balcony. :)

  15. This si so lovely!
