As you can see, my wee triangle garden is doing quite well. Those little rows are lettuce and radish seedlings popping up their heads, and the rhubarb is extremely happy in his corner location.
But inspired by my bud [see what I did there?] @cogno, [aka Chris Mathieson’s] amazing container garden [below] I’ve added a few things.
Chris, who is indulging in a little project in June called Please Stop By, came over last week and made lustful sounds over my full-sun, south-facing deck, declaring it the perfect spot for tomatoes and peppers.
So I decided to take him at his word and try it out.
This little edamame bean has been in his new home for only a couple of days. But he’s so happy there, I think I need to learn how to stake beans — and fast! [All hints and tips welcome!]
I added several peppers, a few herbs and a cucumber plant. We’ll see how the container gardening thing goes, shall we?
In the meantime, here’s a link to another inspiring garden — one belonging to writer Tanya Lloyd Kyi. A few gorgeous pictures of a garden run by someone whose thumbs are more than just pale green, I’d say!
If you have any garden images you’d like to share, let me know and I’ll link to your shots in a future post. And if you know how to stake an edamame bean….please advise!
