Green Thumbin' it UP

I grew up sitting in my backyard garden popping grape tomatoes in my mouth like nobody's business. I've never been too involved in gardening, but it's always been a part of my life since my mom has a real knack for it. I decided to learn more about gardening by beautifying our balcony with a series of random flowers. I got most of my plants from Fertile Gardens on Diversey, where I based a majority of my decision making on the name of the flower. I got plants with names, such as "ice cream" and "confetti," so pretty much anything that made a cute reference.

I also planted an herb garden with lemon basil, cilantro, dill, and peppermint. I'm really looking forward to putting fresh herbs in some cold salads :)
