Here is a great little project for starting an herb garden which won't set you back too many dollars. Do you have a small kiddie pool you aren't using anymore? If not, you can pick up a small one for about $9 at WalMart.
Drill some holes in the bottom. Fill with good mixture of soil and/or compost.
Here we are...we're ready to get more planted but have started with oregano, German thyme, parsley, basil and a cherry tomato plant. I am hoping this cherry tomato plant is bushy so I won't need to stake it. Still need to plant a few more herbs in this pool.
It's been a slow and steady pace getting the raised beds prepared and obtaining a few plants, working with seeds. Hopefully I will be able to share photos showing a lush garden filled with tomatoes, beans, peppers and more. Stay with me for this new labor of love.
Look at that lone squash, sitting in a large box with room to grow. According to a raised bed gardening book we have been consulting, a yellow squash needs a big bed all to it's own as it will spread out.
See ya next time!
