This morning's rooftop garden haul πŸ…πŸ™ŒπŸ» you guys have no idea how excited this makes me. Truthfully I wasn't sure if I was capable of growing anything when I started my urban garden project with @scottsmiraclegrocanada and turns out it's not that hard! I'm packing these guys up and heading to muskoka for a few days to enjoy them (plus just a wee bit of wine) with some good friends. #scottsgrocrew

Just 5 more minutes. Saturday morning vibes thanks to @kipandco.

Dinner al fresco tonight with homemade pesto with basil from my own rooftop herb garden tossed with some @catellipasta. It's called urban plant box to table cooking. It's the newest trend. No seriously, check out my IG story for the recipe and to see how nuts my basil plant is thanks to a little @scottsmiraclegrocanada food and lotsa rain! #scottsgrocrew

This weekend is calling for 100% chance of ice-cream. Even better sandwiched between two waffles.

Waking up on vacation can be hard 😴. #tbt to this guest bedroom I helped design for @cheerfullymade including my favourite gallery wall. We found all the frames at @valuevillage_thrift for next to nothing then filled them with DIY prints all about sleep! The art wall was fun & easy to make - do NOT ask me about hanging patterned wallpaper on a ceiling 😐 #valuevillagediy

Different week, different lake, different sunset view.

Patio decor tip #342 - don't forget about the walls! Treat your outdoor space like your indoor space and put up art. The tutorial for this DIY Boho wall hanging is on the blog today. You can buy all the materials PLUS the hammock at @homedepotcanada. It's sun & weather proof so once it's up you don't have to worry about it, just enjoy it! (Link in profile) #sweetescapepatio

My happy place. Not shown- glass of white wine. #hammocklife #sweetescapepatio

There you have it! My first salad using cucumbers and basil from my own little urban garden. I may be biased but it tasted damn good. If I can grown vegetables living downtown Toronto, then anyone can. πŸ₯’πŸ…πŸŒ±Thanks to @scottsmiraclegrocanada for giving me the best start. Check out the blog for more details on how I set up my rooftop patio vegetable garden. #scottsgrocrew
