If you've been around Pig In Mud for a while you know of my gardening battles with the rabbits (example: Chernobyl HERE) and I've spared you the saga with the squirrels/birds/slugs/squash beetles... Let's just say, nature in general has not been kind to this backyard veggie lover. So this year I've decided to try something... easier. This pot is 18" across and 18" tall, if the rabbits get into it, well, they just need the plants more than I do:@) That's a 6' trellis that Y's out at the top for the beans and cukes.
From left to right: Husky Cherry Tomato, pole green beans around the left side of the trellis (seeds aren't up yet), pickling cucumbers and a jalapeno~anyone surprised??? Got all of these beauties planted on an 80 degree day right before some substantial rain... They should be settled in and happy-happy.
I'll post periodic updates and hopefully a recipe or two with some home grown goodies!
My boys are grown and on their own and while the day job puts food on the table, it doesn't feed the soul. So this Philly Girl started Pig In Mud. Please join me as I welcome each season and holiday through brief posts focusing on home cooking, baking and crafts. I hope you'll find this a happy place that provides inspiration:@) Lynn
