First off, thank you to Kelly of Eat Yourself Skinny for becoming a follower of my blog!
This patio has changed our lives. We have eaten every single meal outside since it was put in. We’ve watched television only three times since April 15th. Right, because I had to see House and we watched two Netflicks movies: Surrogates and Everybody’s Fine.
We spend so much time sitting outside now. Can't wait for the roof to be installed. Recently we started planning a small garden and have put in several tomatoes and a yellow pepper.
Here is a very nice hydroponic planting box Doug received as a gift from his brother.
We have two tomatoes and a cilantro planted in this box. Although we haven’t seen any deer roaming through the yard in some time ( our main herd was wiped out by several cars a few years back and I think the entire family died. It was a mess…) inside the fence is a bit more protection from rabbits, etc.
Here he is....the constant gardener...
If you are interested in this set up please check out Worm’s Way. They have stores in several locations - Indiana, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, N Kentucky/SW Ohio and Tennessee.
Also, they have a tab on their website titled Knowledge Base that has excellent advice on gardening, winterizing your garden, soil testing, composting and much more. It’s a cool site – if you are into gardening and growing stuff, check it out!
Rather than run my yap ... here are some photos. I will update as we grow tomatoes and see the progress.
I hope to show you some nice ripe home grown tomatoes soon!
Next up.....zucchini and herb planting!
