O.T. Raised Planter Project
#11
Rainbow    
Our work in progress -

This is my raised garden – almost done. Still working on all the water piping to go around the yard for berries. The stump inside was a huge bush we removed but ended up liking the ‘skeleton’ of it – not sure if it will stay.


Finally painted - almost


My tomato and zucc are planted and ready to grow!

and I can admire and watch my goodies grow  from the dining room window!


Now, the hard part to decide what to plant in the remaining 6 sections. This is all the garden I will have and I just love how it is all together and compact.

Jean that is fantastic! I love how you can look out at it! The stump is cool - maybe use it as part of a trellis for beans or peas?

Very cool!

Do you ever go across the street to visit the horses?  Bring them carrots or peppermints?  Wink

Your garden is amazing and so creative, Jean! I love it! Don't be surprised when people driving by stop to take pictures or ask you how to build it. Can't wait to see what else you plant.

Thanks for sharing your pix.

BTW, I forgot to tell you that I LOVE your red house! What color and brand is it? We have an old garage in the backyard that Ron just started working on. He picked up the white paint for it, but is waiting for me to pick the red.

Ha! I forgot you asked this 'out here' - I was thinking it was a p.m. and I can't attach pictures to those, so I emailed you the info. Smile
