Tender tomatoes tip toward the sunlight.
Perky potatoes poke through for a peek.
And this? Why it's the pumpkin bed, of course!! Actually there are pie pumpkins on one side and tiny white cucumbers on the other. The idea is to have the plants grow through the springs, shading the roots and keeping them cool. Underneath, the tiny seedlings are planted directly in bags of soil, with holes poked through for drainage. I really hope it works because I think it looks adorable!! There are green beans, dry beans and corn as well, making this a full-service garden!
Did I do this all by myself? Why, no. I had the help of Mr. Smith and John and I am very grateful. It took hours of digging, planting and mulching on this 80+ degree day! But, we are done.
Now all there is to do is water, weed and wait.
