For years I longed for the ability to grow my own fruits and vegetables and experience the joy of watching the excitement on my kids faces as they watch the food they helped to plant and water grow and mature. I'm always looking for ways to encourage my kids to put down the electronics and enjoy creation but there are days where living in a townhouse and HOA development makes that a little more difficult than I would like. I know some day, God's going to give me that big, beautiful back yard, but until then, I'm content and thankful for the home He's given us. Townhouse and close-quarter living has never been my favorite. I long for room to run and a front porch swing that I can sit on and see nothing but the sun going down. This dream is really where Our Southern Style grew out of. Even if you can't enjoy the "living out in the country" way of life, you can still enjoy the inspiration of Southern living, even in the smallest of spaces. Finally, another country-living wish of mine was fulfilled when RopedOnCedar, who sent me the item pictured above at no cost to facilitate this review, made my garden dream a reality with their New 24" Vertical Garden Tower Planter!
