Every year, I get a little better at taking care of our container garden. This year we got ambitious and bought a galvanized steel stock tank from Tractor's Supply, so we could grow tomatoes and cucumbers. They need a LOT of water, and of course the kids love helping out front. 

Sometimes I bring out a TROFAST tray for C.  She loves to fill it, splash in it, and wet her chalks in it.

"It's the world's tiniest paddling pool!" she told me.

Here's to summer in the city, and making the best of small spaces.
