I've lived in the same apartment complex for almost 7 years now. About a year and half ago, I moved to a downstairs apartment. There has been a unused spot on my patio that I'm finally going to try to make useful.

I talked a couple weeks ago about how I wanted to start a small vegetable garden on my apartment patio. I went out and got some supplies to begin the project. Because sometimes I procrastinate, I finally planted everything today.

Full disclosure, I have no green thumb whatsoever. This could be a great success or an absolute failure. Either way, I'm glad I've given it a shot even if I'm not 100 percent sure I've even done it right.

I took pictures as I was planting. Enjoy the progress below.
