We put two pallets side by side and filled the gaps with potting soil. We planted the seeds in the gaps. I imagine we over planted but once the seeds grow, note the optimism, I will thin them out and just nurture the strongest. I am hoping to get some peas, beans, scallions, watermelon and squash out of the efforts.
We also have tomatoes, peppers and a couple herbs in pots. If I can keep the chipmunks and rabbits at bay we may have some fresh veggies, eventually.
It doesn't look like much now, but it was the only way I could think of planting veggies without the back breaking task of digging up the sod. The roots can start in nice soft soil and then grown down into the sod.
The flower pots got a little attention too and I filled the pots on the front steps and the flower box on the deck. The boots my sister gave me a few years ago got some new plants too. I love the little scene they create.
Do you have a summer garden, what do you grow?
