Dan's mom shared these photos and commentary about her garden recently. "Welcome to my modified square foot vegetable garden. In a 5'x13' space there are 3 tomato plants, 5 eggplants, 6 bell pepers, a parsley patch, a row of radishes, a pot of spearment, a square of carrots and 6 zucchini plants. Notice the paved slate garden path reconstructed by yours truly."
Right next to the vegetable garden is my flower garden under the front window. Perennials planted last year are doing nicely. Among the annuals, are my favorite pale yellow petunias, positioned next to dark purple salvia. My friend Salley's gift of a miniature yellow rose is in full bloom. Plans are forming for changes as is customary with garden beds."
Mom is one fabulous gardener (and MIL), I hope I'm still gardening as well when I'm looking at 70 in the rearview mirror.
