|I built this wall around my garden today.|
Free stone is one of the advantages of suburban living. With people coming and going from homes, there is always something stacked up behind sheds. A couple of years ago, we took out all the paving stones our home's former owners had put in, and now they've been reincarnated into a raised bed for my tomato plants.
|Yeah! More, more more!|
Because I weave, my tomatoes are tied with pure linen rug warp. It is lovely stuff and I have tons of thrums left over from my earlier rug projects. It was pretty enjoyable being out there, and working on the tomatoes. I have 12 plants in all--two small potted ones and 10 that I hope will inundate me with tomatoes. Oh, I hope so. I'm also looking forward to the great zucchini and summer squash invasion. The plants are doing really well, but already two little summer squash are gone! What varmint invaded my garden? I don't know. So that is where the wall idea came in because I thing some critters were slipping in under the fence. Of course raccoons will probably just climb right over. Sigh.
