Thought I would share the wonderful garden we have growing on inner patio area.Â I call it an inner patio area as it is fenced on both sides of the neighbors and otherwise resides between the living area proper and the garage.Â Not the best of locations in general, but it is looking like a jungle out there right now.Â Â The pictures in the gallery are from right after it was planted (May 22nd, was planted 19th/20th), an update is coming soon as it is now past the office kickoff of summer.
Should have posted this sometime back, as the summer is now mid way and then some through the summer and I should be posting a follow-up about my results instead of the beginning of the project. Well, I am little behind. After some discussion at the office with a few folks who were going to try the commercial product (that I will not name, but we have all seen the television commercials) and my more than several claims of being able to do it in a two liter soda pop bottle I decided to delve in. A little bit of quick looking on the internet told me exactly what I needed to know and so I set off on the experiment – which I am calling ‘mater hangers!
Finding contentment without the farm, I embarked on a project to build a planter box last weekend for some tomato plants. I was looking to build it on the cheap and have something that I could easily repeat, at least somewhat in the future. To that end I used a wood palette (that was up for recycle purposes) as a source for the wood. Aside from the minor electricity I used, I was out .99 cents for the small brad nails and have enough left for a second box to be constructed.
My wife and I have taken up residence in a townhouse for time being. It is going to be a bit longer before getting farmland of some sort or another. So in the meantime, I am contenting my desire to grow and produce with small bit of gardening on the patio. Granted, a good deal of these plants are just flowers, but there are also tomatoes and herbs.
