Watching Our Garden Grow

My top priority when we moved into our new home was to get a potted garden up and growing. I found these beautiful blue pots and knew they were perfect! I tried to grow a large variety of produce this season to determine what grows well. The best were: tomatoes (though they need bigger pots next year!), cucumbers, lettuce, and carrots.

Details: Patterned papers and stickers are by Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety. "GROW" was written with Making Memories cork alpha stickers and the rest of the title was also written with stickers by MM. I forget who makes the bumblebee brads.
