Today I thought I'd share what I've got going on with my gardens. That's been kind of top priority of late, so that's what is on my mind. I have two decent sized gardens: One here in my back yard, and one plot I rent from Lands End. I also have a teeny tiny container herb garden. More on that later.
Here in my back yard I planted scallions, lettuce, beets, cabbage, carrots, onions, green beans, and peppers. I need to have the green beans here because I need to be able to check them every day. All of the cooler crops I planted here because there is a section of my garden that is a tad on the shady side later in the day.
(Flower box I built. Still need to build another.)
A couple of days ago I built a planter box for my herb garden. I've mentioned a time or two on this blog about some barn boards I hoarded....er, salvaged a couple years ago. Little by little those boards are becoming useful things. Some of them became the planter boxes for my deck. They are just kind of thrown together, which is totally OK with me. I love the rustic look of them. The feet on the herb garden box are from an old couch we just threw away. I knew I would find a project to reuse them on!
(I think the lemon thyme is beautiful.)
