The Garden Chronicles

It started as an idea. It has become a jungle of a reality. My lovely husband built the box. I filled it with top soil (I think we ended up with 20 bags!), 2 bags of cotton burr compost and some worm castings. Then I planted some plants. Tomatoes (six kinds!), peppers, cantaloupe, eggplant, cucumbers (the cucumbers are taking over), zucchini and squash (not doing so well), basil, parsley, yellow watermelon. I tried to do seeds, but they didn't work out. Next year it's definitely on! Anyway, a pictorial...
