The sap has started running all over the internet and there’s a lot of chatter about raised garden beds. I applaud all who undertake this enterprise and wish them well. For myself, I gave up raised bed gardening in the 80s after I had the laughable naiveté to submit photos of my own to Organic Gardening magazine.
This year, I’m going to trellis bucket-planted cucumbers up the side of my deck.
I came across a recycling idea of stacking old ties as garden containers and that sort of appeals to me except that I’m afraid Sami will embrace the mission of bringing home old tires long after I have lost enthusiasm for the idea.
We’ve already got a collection of 5-gallon buckets.
