Last year I really wanted a small vegetable garden, but I was not able to do the work involved in getting one planted. So, over the last few months, I have been looking around the internetz and Pinterest, and gardening websites, and and and…I have figured out a way to make a raised garden that I won’t have to bend over or do heavy work like digging or raking or all that other stuff to get it prepared and planted. It involves using some normal everyday things in unique ways to accomplish my goals.
Yes, yes, I am going to use those two green canvas camp chairs for part of it. I might even use another blue canvas chair that has been under the back porch for more than a year. These chairs seem to be unstable at best, and they are very difficult for me to get up out of if I sit in them. So, they are going to be re-purposed into a veggie garden.
The concrete well head that is in our yard, covering up an old, out of use well, will also be incorporated into my garden. The last time you saw this, it was when I was planking you for voting for me in a contest. If ( and I really mean when) this garden is up and running, I will be showing you pictures of it every Friday for the entire gardening season. I am so excited and just can not wait!
So, I am planning to plant swiss chard, onions, kale, and English peas first. Later on, I want to plant some green beans, squash, peppers, and eggplant and some tomatoes. If you had a little garden, what would be your “must have” vegetable to plant in it?
