    Very nice! I am trying to grow tomatoes from seeds but they are dying. I have to get some plants and put them in the ground now.

    Hi Ruth,
    that's looking good. What do you put in those tires? I use tires in the winter around my rose bushes. and then in spring I stack 2 or 3 and fill with compost and plant potatoes in them. No digging! Elaine

    We have never been successful with seeds. We always start with plants.

    Oh Ruth...I'm so glad you said what that was!!! I could not figure out the pink pig :roll: That a good idea about the zuccini in the tires..your right, it does sprawl. Here is doesn't last all that long though, it will burn up as soon as the rains stop and it starts getting really hot. The I have the ugly dead stuff in the garden.

    Can't wait to see what you have coming up!

    I would love to try those but have no place to put them. Will you please post pics later in the season and let us know how they worked out?

    Ruth, your garden is wonderful! I am so jealous. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: What all did you plant? Do you eat it all fresh or do you can or freeze some of it?

    In my neighborhood we are not allowed to plant gardens, but I have an herb garden and I sneak in a couple of tomato and pepper plants. I bribe my next door neighbor to keep mum by supplying her family with tomatoes all summer!! Yum--they sure are good.

    Marcia....everytime I think we could move to somewhere that doesn't allow junk cars piled in the yard...I hear something like "can't plant a garden" and I say..nope. Anyway, my Dad plants okra, tomatoes, cantalope and watermelons in his FLOWER BEDS! He could plant anywhere..has 111 acres, but he is too lazy to till up a garden.. Anyway..he eats off those plants all summer, so it works! :lol: :lol:

    I just have to garden, its in my blood. Many of my ancestors were dirt farmers. I just get a good feeling from doing it. I share with my family. This year I have heirloom tomatoes. They are ripe when they are red orange or part green. I bought 6 plants and the leaves all look different, so it will be interesting. I just replanted my cucumbers as the first planting didn't grow..to cold. On the tall sticks I have a mix of pole beans and morning glories. :D I have a row of bush beans, carrots and beets. The lettuce I planted has not done well, so may replant in another spot :D

    I have done heirloom tomatoes and the taste is fabulous. Wondering, I don't know where you live, but isn't lettuce a spring (colder weather) crop? I have found it tends to bolt quickly if the weather turns warmer.
