I used to live in a tiny apartment on the cozy third floor of a historic brownstone. Now I live in a bigger apartment in another historic rowhouse downtown in our small city. We have exposed brick walls, a back deck and enough space in our kitchen to dance while I cook. I’ve also made a few brave attempts at urban gardening: tiny pots of herbs and salad veggies resting precariously on our window ledge and a terrifically unsuccessful attempt at growing tomatoes in a Topsy-Turvy on the back of our bathroom door. The home and garden are both works-in-progress and when I remember, I like to share that progress with all of you.
