How Does Your Garden Grow?
With our little 'heat wave' I thought it be best that the garden (and I use this term loosely) get planted.
I have always wanted a garden! Well, the last few years anyway. But our yard is used for playing with the kids...there just isn't a whole lot of space left that we want to till up.
And in a more truthful side note, one that we aren't going to discuss here often...And I will deny if you bring it up...we DID have a little garden plot about 8 or so years ago. Planted some tomatoes and pumpkins. And while watering one lovely evening, a snake zipped between my feet. And I was done up there for the rest of the summer leaving Hubby to deal with the tomato plants.
So, no, there is no area we will be tilling to use as a garden.
Instead, we use some old window boxes that we had on the front of our home and salvaged, filled with soil and stuck on our back patio.
Where there ARE no snakes. Nor will there ever BE any snakes. Please don't suggest otherwise. I have huge snake issues.
Last year we planted tomatoes, basil, sugar snap peas, green peppers and some onions.
This year, we planted 3 different kinds of tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, sweet red peppers, basil, parsley and peppermint. Bring Summer On.
