I live in the heart of midtown in a tiny cabin with a nice big yard. My garden plot is underlaid with tree roots which has prohibited me to garden there in the past; but not this year! With shovel and axe in hand, I took to tearing up the plot. After digging out an area of about 3' x 5' I determined that was plenty big to plant my potatoes. In all actuality, my back was killing me, my feet will never be clean again, and my karma is not looking good after all the earth worm and tree sapling killing I did.
Here are a few pictures of my mad gardening skills in action. Don't forget, you can click on them to enlarge them.
|Front of the house has: chamomile, lavender, basil, radishes|
|My radishes are growing like crazy. Oddly enough, I'm not a huge fan.|
|Sorry it's sideways! My green onions, chives and garlic are doing great!|
|Growing lots of beets for pickling!|
|Brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and zuchinni. I am most excited about the||brussel sprouts!|
|Zinnia, catnip and some pots with something in it. I can't remember!|
|In the foreground (blue box), carrots, and peas. Orange pots have herbs.||Long raised bed has pickling cucumbers. Ugly piece of white picket fence has beans in front of it. My HUGE garden has potatoes, beets, and more cucumbers.|
|and lots of rhubarb. Pie, pie, me oh my!|
