Spring Planting

My soils's not prepped yet and last Fall I purged my pot collection so I'm a tad behind on the Spring planting, the kitchen window has become my greenhouse
These little beauts were a birthday gift from IBT, a sweet friend of mine and bridesmaid, girl knows what I love

I've been doing a little research on a strategic way to plant this Summers vegetable garden and have found some awesome ideas on the world wide web:

This is such a fantastic and fun looking way to grow lettuce, in rain gutters!
Could be a fun weekend project for the deck?
Good luck to those darned snails up this one!

My vegetable plot is against our bedroom window, so it's tricky to have access to the tomatoes
I've been looking for a way to make it work and found these plans on the Better Homes & Gardens website
In Boy's Life, how cool is this?
There's a detailed step-by-step tutorial too!
Why isn't this is Glamour or Cosmopolitan, they'd sure get a new reader if they broadened their topics

Now if I could just have a chicken coop along with my organized plot blooming with tomatoes, greens and herbs - I could live in pure bliss!
This could be achieved if I was able to build a nice house in Yountville and just use Thomas Keller's French Laundry's garden as my back yard... just sayin'

But this, this my friends is what I long for, the garden in the movie, 'It's Complicated':

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far, I need to run to get ready for a shower BRS' aunt and sister are graciously hosting for me!

Happy Weekend!
