It grows in many, many pots. Our local garden shop tricked me into buying a flat of veggies and flowers about a week ago. And so the cycle began. Buy pots. Buy dirt. Fill them up. Repeat.
We have several landscape goals this summer but two are on my mind right now. 1. A hosta garden on the shady side of house. 2. Create a permanent Earth Box planting area on the sunny side of shed. I won't be planting anything there yet but I want it all set for next spring.
Earth Boxes have a water-wicking basin under all the dirt and a tube on the surface where you pour the water. This means you can water a little less often. That's something I need about halfway-through the summer when I forget to water my plants everyday.
For the time-being, the Topsy Turvies I bought are giving me enough trouble. I thought I could hang them off shepherd's hooks instead of drilling hooks under an overhang. But wow, are those suckers heavy! They almost took down the hook until I could grab another shepherd's hook to stabilize the sucker. And I need an pot of dirt to counter the weight. So it doesn't look too pretty for now. It might be time to drill, baby, drill.
I have more to share but oh, look at the post length already. So I'm going to go stick some tissues up my nose and enjoy the weather.
