First of all, check out the difference a month makes! We have arugula in drawer #2 and lettuce in drawer #3. I loaded the top planter with a trailing plant and a couple of different full and bushy flowers. I can’t wait for it to cascade over the sides of the dresser! I also planted some spinach and peas behind the flowers.

That wall there belongs to our neighbors house and I don’t think they would be too keen on me putting holes in it to attach something directly to the wall. So, I needed to get creative… I decided to build a very basic and simple trellis to prop on the dresser behind the planter box.
