Spring Project: A Home Vegetable Garden

There's something about the longer days of spring that inspire us to start new projects, clean out closets, and pursue new interests. And this week, that has everything to do with creating a little garden of our own.

Bon Appetit recently published a sweet little slideshow on 6 Fun Steps to a Home Vegetable Garden and we were instantly inspired. In it are everything from products and tools to books and seeds. Some of our favorites were the great galvanized steel watering can, and a ready-to-grow kit for the newbie gardener. There are photos along with links to purchase each item.

And while this was a great start, we found ourselves wanting to know more nuts & bolts &mdash more about how to actually create little kitchen gardens at home.
