|Dave and son Luke --- the water volleyball champs for 3 years running!|
This week I have been posting about our cheap-and-make-do gardening efforts. The first two posts were ways we have been successful using a variety of small and small-ish containers----in the tiny area that wasn't taken up by our 15x30 foot above ground swimming pool.
The pool died three years ago shortly before a good friend, who lived at the end of our street, offered us her raised garden boxes complete with soil. The gift was unbelievable! Moving them seemed overwhelming---if not impossible!
As words from an old Roger Miller song encourages, "knuckle down, buckle down, do it, do it, do it!"
Impossible just takes a little longer!
Last year we added a compost area where the white buckets are. It is amazing how fast it fills up with the peelings and trimmings.
There is peace and satisfaction in watching the garden grow. There is great pleasure in picking the produce and often, eating it right on the spot. . .and sharing it.
