This has been a great year for me for my garden and outdoor living area. My little outdoor garden space at my rental home has been very easy to manage. So here are some outdoor garden ideas for small spaces.
I had sold my home a few miles away from where there were lots of deer so I never had the opportunity to grow a garden. This little cottage that I have has a white fence around the property. So there is no chance of deer getting through.
My first outside ideas was to create a raised garden in April and I can say happily that there is basil, cilantro, tomatoes, squash and peppers growing. The tomatoes and peppers are very small. By the end of July, I should have full-grown tomatoes and peppers. The squash will be more like the end of summer. It’s been great making lots of basil and cilantro recipes. You can read about my raised garden here!
I added a table and chairs near the garden space where I can prepare the basil and dry it out in the sun. It’s also a great place to enjoy a glass of lemonade.
Also during the April month, I had planted some perennials in metal and wood containers that I had found at the flea market in Charleston. The flowers are blooming beautifully and have grown so much. It does take a daily dose of water each day to keep these beauties going. The garden chandelier has been a challenge getting on a ladder every day to water them. But I love it.

I hope you all enjoying being outdoors. I am building a new home and it is going to be relatively small and this house has inspired me with some great small outdoor living ideas for us to bring to the new home.
