Moving right along....
Some of you may be wondering why I haven't been posting.
Well I'll tell you...
...I don't know...
Time just gets away from me.
Anyway, following are photos of my latest project: my container garden.
I started with some livestock mineral containers that my landlord very graciously gave me. Randy helped me drill some holes in it for drainage.
Then, we added rocks.
I don't know why, but all the research said to add a layer of rocks. On top of the rocks, I put a layer of horse manure (I have an infinite supply), and then some top soil I bought at the garden center. I figured, purchased top soil would probably be weed-free. Also, it was on sale 4 bags for 5 bucks.
Our cat, Goldie a/k/a Mr. Gold wanted to help with the chicken wire I used to keep the rabbits out of my containers.
I planted gold tomatoes, red tomatoes, tomatillos, jalopenos and green bell peppers. I saved one container for an eggplant and will get that in as soon as the eggplant bedding plants arrive at my garden center.
We put down some landscape fabric for weed control and sat the containers up on "rails" for adequate drainage.
And there you have it: My Container Garden, thoroughly inspected by Mr. Gold.
So... what have you all been up to?
