Do you have a porch, balcony or even just a kitchen windowsill? Chances are then at some point you've likely dabbled with growing plants from seed, potting flowers or even gathering herbs and so on — all the fun found in cultivating a CONTAINER GARDEN of your very own. Show us what you've done or what you'd like to see.

For me, I'm particularly enjoying watching our dear little lemon plant growing in the jar by the window, knowing it started its life as just a simple seed from one of our store bought lemons. And you know what else? The leaves smell amazing, providing a natural air freshener, 100% chemical free! How brilliant is that? :)

Another wonder with such "gardening" is that, of course, you can grow something all year round. September, here we come!

  1. Oh this will be fun ~I do have plants on my balcony....but I really need to do an herb garden. Glad you had a nice trip and your little lemon tree sound delightful. My mom used to grow a plant from sweet potato in a jar. Sending Hugs.

  4. Hi dear Michael - I love the idea of the lemon tree. I buy lemons by the bag as I use them in so many recipes. I also drink warm water with a juicy wedge of lemon every morning first thing so always have plenty of seeds, I must try growing one on the kitchen window sill! Great idea for a natural air freshener, even though I may not actually be harvesting lemons an time soon!

    Hope all is well - we're still hoping for cooler weather, it continues to be far too hot around these parts!
    Hugs, Mary

  5. I love self contained gardens especially small ones but as a theme, I'm not so sure but we'll see.

    a lemon plant sounds great for any room, a great idea actually.

    have a lovely day.

    1. You are so funny when it comes to themes, Lissa. Often not sure about them but yet always seeming to find that lovely spark of imagination anyway. Wonder if you will this time? :)

    2. sadly, no entry from me as I just couldn't see do get into the theme. I couldn't find any particular idea that I like. perhaps my mind was elsewhere, either way, I'll visit the others.

  6. That is brilliant. Love that you have great smelling leaves and I might just give that a go, myself. Thanks for the idea and have an oogie boogie day.

  7. Hi Michael. I didn't plan on creating a post for today, but your prompt inspired me to at least do a drawing. There's wasn't time to add color. I get carried away adding ink details. Looking forward to viewing all the other Creative Tuesdays' masterpieces. :-)
