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.

(2) parsley plants
(1) Rosemary plant
(1) Bell pepper plant
