2020 has been a wild ride! I'm a little bit behind in making videos for you, but...I thought it was about time for a life update! I found myself in Puerto Rico through the earthquakes and COVID-19 Pandemic! While I'm a legal Puerto Rican citizen, I don't yet have a permanent home on the island. So, I've been renting Airbnb's, which has been awesome... So, when I rented a "garden house" in Rincón I was expecting it to have, well some kind of garden or growing area. Well, let's just say there isn't much of a garden to speak of!!! I had to get creative and find ways to grow food when you have no yard! I made a few videos for y'all to share you how I started some veggie seeds...and maybe even a little guerilla gardening! Oh, and did I mention the iguanas? Stay tuned to see how I did despite these fun garden pests and lack of growing space!

Grow vertically. Pole beans. Tomatoes in cages. Use containers.

I grew tomatoes (kept them pinched back to make them bushy), all kinds of greens, strawberries, and bush squash. You could grow vining things, but I didn't have a way to trellis them. Mine were growing on the ping-pong table so I could get them closer to the lights.
