Gardening requires lots of water - most of it in the form of perspiration. ~Lou Erickson
I suppose to those who are not military and have never lived on an military instillation they might not know that you are not allowed to dig up the yard and have a garden. So, as usual, the military wives in my neighborhood have had to get creative! Two neighbors have done raised vegetable beds. Another lady is doing strawberry and tomato hanging baskets.
I have chosen to give container gardening a whirl.
We have already pulled six off and we will be cutting about three off tomorrow.
Mostly green foliage with only a few flowers.
I need some bees to start pollinating or I am going to have to do it myself.
We have pulled a zip lock bag off already and they are just starting to grow well.
They are sucking up the water though!
I have to fill the water up every day.
We also have a strawberry pot, blueberry and raspberry!
However, they get to about this amount of leaves and the deer come and get a munch!
My poor raspberry bucket is just twigs which is how they left this strawberry pot just a few weeks ago. So, with the twig pot, I might have to pull it all up and try some thing different in it.
I am really tickled by the prospects of doing well!
