2020 has been a wild ride! I'm a little bit behind in making videos for you, but...I thought it was about time for a life update! I found myself in Puerto Rico through the earthquakes and COVID-19 Pandemic! While I'm a legal Puerto Rican citizen, I don't yet have a permanent home on the island. So, I've been renting Airbnb's, which has been awesome... So, when I rented a "garden house" in Rincón I was expecting it to have, well some kind of garden or growing area. Well, let's just say there isn't much of a garden to speak of!!! I had to get creative and find ways to grow food when you have no yard! I made a few videos for y'all to share you how I started some veggie seeds...and maybe even a little guerilla gardening! Oh, and did I mention the iguanas? Stay tuned to see how I did despite these fun garden pests and lack of growing space!

Rising to the challenge. You can’t keep a good gardener down. Did I see a balcony?. Lots of folks have small gardens in balconies or even on rooftops. I’m interested what you figured out as small space gardening is my new interest.
Do they have Walmart in PR? Cheers

Hey Jeremy,

Definitely can't stop me from gardening. I started seeds on the small patio in the backyard then moved them out to different parts of the public land. There's a Walmart I use for planters when I can't find any deep enough... :)
