Gardening

Built a vertical garden. Not the best looking but hey it worked. Next year I need to add more landscaping fabric instead of relying on a single layer, it was fine until I started watering it. Got Pepperoncini's in top left, jalapeno's top right, spinach below those which didn't work, I even tried some seed starts and those didn't work either so I guess they're duds, then got some kale, and finally cucumbers.

Then I've also got a hydroponic garden growing tomatoes and jalapeno's.

I also garden vertically ( I call it upright gardening). I do it for my back--I hate all the bending involved in a "normal" garden. Due to my recent move, I will have to rebuild all my garden structures. I have tried a lot of different types--chicken wire with a straw base, green wood frames, and doubled buckets. I will probably build some green wood frames and keep my tomatoes in the buckets. This will be my winter project.

I was going to build a different type of vertical garden by screwing some window planters onto the front of a pallet but for whatever reason, probably got lazy, I didn't build it. I would have planted a regular garden but I live with my sister and she didn't want me tilling up her yard.

That's pretty kool way to grow stuff.
I don't have room in my yard
Well actually the dogs would either eat it or piss on it.

My cats actually take out a lot of my plants by "pissing" on them. The plants die pretty quickly--especially since my one cat chooses one plant and continuously pees on it until it is dead. Perhaps he thinks of it as his summer project. He can be a real asshole!

I got a relatively low yield from my actual produce this year, mostly because I started small on my garden. Certain crops grew better than others, my jalapeno plant still has one pepper growing. I have garlic in now, it's coming along well.
