It's January in the Northwest, which means lots of rain and gray skies. I'm someone who's happiest outside in the yard, or better yet shopping at a nursery. While I prefer not to be stuck indoors, now is the time that I can review last summer's plant choices and decide what I'd like to try this year.
My yard consists of an upper and lower deck, so my focus is on container plantings that include flowers and vegetables. Hanging baskets have worked in the past, now I'm ready to investigate more vertical options.
