Vegetable Garden Growing Cheat Sheet

For the first 17 years of my life, I always had a vegetable garden where I lived. Few things made me happier than just being able to walk outside and cut off a fresh cucumber or other vegetable to eat. When in college and upon graduating, I no longer had the space for a garden...the lone exception was 2 years in Boston where I had a container garden on my terrace. For the next (7) years living in Los Angeles, (2) in Buenos Aires and (1) in Chile, I never got around to growing again.

Now living in Zagreb, I'm fortunate enough to have (2) decent size terraces with ample room for a container garden. So after 10 years, I have a vegetable garden.

(5) zucchini plants
(5) cucumber plants
(2) beefsteak tomato plants
(10) Roma tomato plants
(3) Detroit beet plants
(2) basil plants
(2) parsley plants
(1) Rosemary plant
(1) Bell pepper plant

And the first harvest...

Thanks to Lifehacker, here's a handy guide for any other container garden growers out there...

American made Malia. Happy #4thofJuly ! Here's a photo I took in January. #Maliadog has always lived in warm weather cities until moving to #zagreb. After many cold days last year, it was time for her first dog clothes, something I detested. But finding a #USA #flag dog sweater at a pet store in #croatia was worth it.

A #tbt of sorts. I no longer own many things from my time growing up in #westmilford #nj. But this comb from Jimmy the Barber's is still with me after 25 years. It's originally from the late 80's (pre-973 area code and 7 digit calls)

Happy Birthday to #maliadog who turns 6 today. You've been a great friend, doggy daughter, exercise partner and travel companion. Without you, I would not have had the strength to pack my bags 4 years ago, move abroad, and start the wonderful life I have today. #happybirthday Thanks again, @muchloveanimalrescue
