I sometimes wonder if my garden grows because of me or in spite of me! The following pictures show two examples. Volunteer tomato plant that is growing in a dirt mound, in front of a a spray painted old skillet that we use/used for target practice. MY DH pointed it out to me today. Obviously it has been growing for awhile.
A bucket fell on this pepper plant a few weeks ago and it broke completely off at ground level. I figured I had nothing to lose and I stuck it back in the ground immediately. All the leaves fell off, but it is now sprouting new leaves.
Garden at 6 weeks. Although it is not made out of pretty wood or landscape blocks, the concrete blocks are practical. The garden is in the back of the yard and hidden by pine trees and azaleas so it is not seen by the road. Pie pans and owl are bird and squirrel deterrents.
It is not much compared to some of the wonderful gardens I have seen posted on here, but I like it and last year I got enough for my family and enough to share a little.
