My garden pictorial

Johnny C just brought home a pink bathtub from a remodel job, so of course the logical place to put it is IN OUR YARD!!! We are such trailer trash.
My basil crop: sweet, Thai, and lettuce leaf basil.
Canna lilies in a pot

My gardening shed - built by Johnny C - which used to be the coolest play house ever! Now it's the perfect place to keep my tools. I'm going to miss this little house.

Today's harvest: some gladiolus, zinnias, 2 cucs, 8-9 plum tomatoes, sweet basil, purple basil, and Thai basil.
The raised beds Johnny C built and I planted - all made with scrap lumber!
My garden under the influence of the sprinkler. The bed that looks empty just finished all the carrots. Onions are still cooking, and the 2nd and 3rd harvest of beets are popping up.
Johnny C's homemade cuc trellis - made with scrap, old nails, and twine.

What a lovely garden. I wish I had a green thumb, or lived closer to you.

Awesome garden. I'm so envious.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots. What a wonderful garden! I might have to steal that trellis (!!!). [Oops, I tipped my hand. Dang.]
