Gardening for Everyone

You Grow Girl is the subject of my weekly internet inspiration post this week.  You Grow Girl was one of the first blogs that I started reading consistently, and I still love it.  The author, Gayla Trail, also wrote a book by the same title.  You Grow Girl is one of the first garden books that I ever read and I love it.  The book focuses on starting small and simple and how to garden with whatever space you currently have.  I very much recommend reading it if you love the idea of gardening but don't know how to start.  You Grow Girl, the blog, focuses on what Gayla is growing or reading about or seeing in other gardens.  I love having her posts pop up in my blog reader.  They are always full of beautiful pictures and inspire me to get outside and make something beautiful.  I love all the creative ideas that she comes up with to make gardening even more beautiful.  Her approach to gardening is definitely not traditional.  She describes it as a "contemporary, laid-back approach to gardening places equal importance on environmentalism, style, affordability, art, and humour."  I like it, you should check it out.
Isn't this colander turned hanging lettuce container great? Read more about it here.
