I still need another Celebrity, 2 Poblano peppers, and a few more herbs and I'll be set.

    Y'all would laugh your head of if you saw my garden. I don't think that anyone's red neck gardens can compete with mine, with cardboard covering everything. But if it enables me to grow stuff without having do dig, I'm happy with it. I love sticking stuff in the ground, watching it grow, and present me with really good food.

    I'm still mourning the loss of my blueberry crop, but at least the bushes lived. I'm hoping that since it wasn't able to grow the berries to maturity, it might mean that I'll get an even better crop next year.
    Would never laugh at a fellow gardeners garden, would stand back and learn! We used cardboard tents too!
    My son Nick and I made an 8x5 square foot garden in the back yard where we had full sun and man... the stuff we grew in there was amazing! SO much crammed into a small area, we had trellises managing the growth.
    Lettuce, radishes, brussels, corn, tomatoes, beets, BIG cukes and carrots, string beans, BIG tasty peppers, etc. Super fertile soil! Great memories. Then we built a pool in the small yard, no more garden :-(

    I bet you'd way more like the garden back. I guess as hot as it is in south Florida it's nice to have a pool, but I'd never want one. I'd like a big pond with fish and ducks and turtles, but not a swimming pool.

    I'll call my garden "unconventional" just like I don't call myself a crazy old lady. I now call myself eccentric.
