Our new veggie garden is really underway. The stock tanks are filled with organic soil, and planted with all sorts of interesting vegetables, herbs and seeds. Two kinds of potatoes are planted in the garbage cans. Besides waiting for the seeds to germinate, I can’t wait for all that shiny metal to start to simmer down and look more aged. We are enjoying being able to sit right in the midst of our future harvest.
I planted sugar snap peas around the bases of the rusty plant stand and bar stool. The grate will hold tromboncino zucchini. And the plan is that the sugar snaps will be picked by the time the zucchini needs more room.
The head and foot boards of an old metal bed are propping up our raspberry vines. We’ve reinforced them with some rebar stakes and wire. We’ll beef them up some more in the future. I’m embracing the idea of making things better instead of perfect.
