After sharing my own garden pictures earlier this week, I asked readers to send pictures of their own gardening efforts. Two readers, Michelle and Kenn, came through with some images I want to show off here. In their own words…
Kenn: Just sent a pic of (most) of my garden, couldn’t get the potatoes or onions in the pic. So far have been harvesting squash, zucchini, new red potatoes, onions, and one cucumber, one green pepper, and one grape tomato.
Michelle: I live in a townhouse and we have a tiny backyard, so I have crammed everything I can in. The first picture has my tomatoes and Brussels sprouts. I keep my tomatoes pretty thin, otherwise they’ll take over the whole space. My Brussels are looking scraggily after an attack by some big fat green caterpillars, that I ended up picking off by hand. In the other picture is my strawberries (in the front on the ground), corn, and a rosemary bush. My garden is so small that I obviously don’t live off of it, but I like to learn things about different plants when I grow them. I have a reference book, “The New Self Sufficient Gardener” by John Seymour that I check about every five minutes in the summer.
Anyone else want to show off their garden? E-mail those pics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
