My Vegetable Garden

Last year, at the campsite, I grew tomatoes and herbs in pots but I really wanted some peppers and onions for salsa and lettuce for hubby’s sandwiches but I couldn’t see growing them in planters. This year hubby had a great idea for a garden; he suggested we use one of the tree trunks that the contractors had cut down when building the new campsites. His plan was to lay the log lengthwise and cut out the center section so that I could fill it with dirt and plant veggies. Having our son come for a visit was the perfect time to put hubby’s idea into action … a young, strong man to manhandle the log into the truck and then into the perfect location on our site was a great idea 🙂 So hubby set to work to cut out the middle section of the log and our son did the rest … I have to admit I was pretty impress when he hugged the log and lifted it into the back of his truck! I may have made them roll it into a few locations on our site but it was soon placed in the perfect spot.

The next day I had my plants in, lettuce, cilantro, thyme, basil, and rosemary (I had to put the peppers in a planter as I didn’t have room for them). Now a week later my veggie garden is growing nicely 🙂

Until next time …

  1. Looking good. We have limited our garden boxes to Raspberries, Strawberries, Garlic and Rhubarb as they aren’t feasted on by our little neighbours from the Ravine behind us. Our Kale, Basil and Lettuce is in pots up on the deck though. The critters can see it, but not get to it there.
