Happy Spring to everyone in the northern hemisphere! We had a beautiful weekend in Southeast Texas with blue skies, perfect temperatures and low humidity. I enjoyed two trips to the trails and my husband smoked a brisket and mowed the lawn that is suddenly green and growing . Winter sure went by fast, as always.
I thought I’d share some photos of the huge planter box built by my husband and sons. They re-used the wood and tin from our old chicken coop . Then they filled it with cut up logs and old mulch and topped that off with some good garden soil we bought from a dirt yard. This is a method of gardening called Hugelkultur that my husband discovered on YouTube . You put the stuff under the dirt and it rots and feeds the soil. In the bed are onions , red, bell and orange peppers, Roma tomatoes, zucchini , and cucumbers . The tomatoes don’t look very promising, but the peppers are showing off . Sweet yellow Onions are looking good, too. I’m not much of a gardener myself, I mostly like to come up with projects for them to keep them busy . Haha! But I do enjoy watching the plants grow. Hoping for a bountiful harvest !
