As you walk in/out of my home, these lovelies call for attention. They’re the sole survivors of the “herb garden” kit the kids picked out. And attend to them I will! (with tomatoes from the garden and fresh mozz and a wee smidge of olive oil). I need to thin them out and move them….SOMEwhere.
The hose coming out of the container is my own piece of redneck ingenuity – that’s the drain siphon. I just *knew* that cast iron monster would make an ideal pot, and it is quite nice…except for the distinct lack of drainage holes.
This is my first experience with canteloupes in a bucket. I need to trellis it, now that the vines are actually trying to escape the container.
Second verse, similar to the first. There are five watermelon plants in this container – and yes, I already know that’s WAY too many. See also: inexperienced but learning. And yes, more trellises to buy.
Our two strawberry plants. Unfortunately they’re eye candy – I’ve not been able to harvest one berry from them yet. (And yes, I know there’s one berry there. ONE!!!)
Cherry and pear tomatoes in an earthbox. We’re not TOTALLY frugal frannies around here. (Mama bought the earthboxes a year or three ago.) I love how well those plants snuggle together and work to produce…
Hello, darlin’. Wanna come to dinner? I’ll introduce you to my friends.
Hello? Gardener’s Anonymous? What’s the cure for crowded bed syndrome? Define crowded bed for you? Okay…I have 18 roma tomato plants, an entire packet of radish seeds that got dumped in one corner, three squash, one early girl tomato in the other corner….and the cuke that took over the world.

I’ve got a bottle of vinegar just waitin’.
