Garden Saturday

I am so excited to share my garden today. Last Thursday as I was checking and watering the garden I noticed that Zucchini  is already growing. If you garden you know how thrilling it is to see plants doing their job with such ease. Then on Friday I noticed yellow squash coming to life!  
Having a garden here on the Oregon coast adds another job of protecting the plants from the horrendous daily (f@$%^^^%^) wind. Yesterday it started early and lasted well into the night. So, the yard garden had to be covered all day. As soon as the sun came up this AM I uncovered everything for the morning sun. I will be covering it all up in a few hours.

 Peas everywhere!

 A little bit of harvest


As you can see I don't have expensive containers, or planters. I got most of them at the $ store and containers I have on hand.  What I am trying to say is, you can grow food in just about anything as long as there is good drainage, and you don't need a lot of space. 
Be Safe Out There And Still Wear A Mask!

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
