we finished our standing boxes, surrounded by pavers and mulch. it's pretty. now i just need to go find some chard and lettuce seedlings. catnip with logs to keep the gardeners from weedwhacking it. that's pretty much what they do- weedwhack. EVERYTHING. :/ 1st teepee, this one was planned. the base is smaller than i wanted because j wanted to brick it in with the leftover bricks. second pea, all from found items in yard. they were on sale, i'm a sucker for sale plants :P side veiws of my gawgeous garden. needs moar veggies in center aisle. (empty pots are freshly seeded with marigolds and salvia)the first flower box is yeloow snaps and purple/varigated alyssum with a lavander on the far end and starwberry on the close end. middle box is only arugla and starwberry last box is a bells, jalepenos, serranos, tomatos, anaheims, and a cuke. the ground was weeded and then we put down weedblock fabric, the boxes, and mulch, the bricks are to keep the mulch in. i originally wanted to use pavers, but the mulch was cheaper. all said though, once we discovered the need for the bricks, i think it was almost even. i think the mulch is pretty, and this was i can put down pretty stepping stones if we find any. this is what we started with btw: my cactus is blooming! garden troll! this is boo's box. he has a swan river daisy, yellow snaps, purple dot flowers, and a mini watermelon.
