New Idea

I have come up with a different plan for my "garden".  I've been reading about "guerilla gardening" where you toss the seeds out into unused areas and allow them to grow (or not grow) however they will.  Since I couldn't get any help with preparing a garden space and I had already bought a bunch of seeds, I decided to plant the herbs (rosemary, basil, chives, dill, etc...) in containers.  The remaining seeds, such things as pumpkins, cucumbers, etc..., I chose places in the yard that are not likely to be mowed and planted the seeds directly in those places.  The kids and I are hand-watering them in hopes that they come up and produce vegetables.  I'll let you know if this method works....... lol....

No garden so far.

Its getting pretty late in the season and I still haven't been able to start my garden, mostly because of a lack of interest and committment on the part of my son, with whom I live.  The kids are all for it but my son and his wife keep waffling about it, so I guess it won't happen.  *sigh*  I was SOOOO looking forward to fresh tomatoes.
