Planter Box!

My darling husband Nate does metal work and design work. He is pretty much the best husband ever.

You see, I need a garden. Badly. But we live in a 600 square foot apartment in the middle of the city. And we love where we live. So I don’t have a garden.

I’ve made do this year with a window box in my classroom. But I want more!

So I came home yesterday to find that Nate had merged his metalworking skills with my gardening desire. Here’s the result:

He’s promised me several more of these. I hope the neighbors and landlord like them as much as I do!

Should I cover the back walkway/fire escape in them? They hang on the outside of the railing so they do not impede traffic up and down the fire escape.
