Garden photos posted

I just posted the progress of the June garden.  It seems to be chugging along despite the cold, rainy and general miserable weather we had just a few weeks ago.  It did help when I covered most of my tomatoes and cucumbers with greenhouse plastic, and put empty milk jugs filled with water around the plants which seems to help maintain heat, which I still have them around the plants and I think that I will just keep them around for a while.
Well, I am off to bake a angel food cake and later I will put a whole chicken in for dinner and leftovers.  yummm.
So, the getto garden is taking off.


  1. I just read a blog where the gal paints her milk jugs black because they absorb the heat...I think that's a great idea and something I'm going to try next year...right now it's not needed...95 degrees!

  2. I love seeing the pictures of your garden and how everything is growing. Thank you for sharing. I'm inspired to grow some veggies come fall.

  3. Vicki, I am impressed by how great everything looks. Your landlord and neighbors should be happy campers!

  4. Oh, don't call it a ghetto garden--it looks colorful and creative!
