|I don't think this is what the trailer park manager meant when she called my gardens "over the top", but some of the sunflowers and some of the corn is now over the top of my head!|
|Much of the backyard is dominated by towering corn, with vining things such as watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, and squashes growing around their bases to act as a living mulch.|
|The potato condo is completely hidden behind the house, so it could be said that it is the only thing truly in the backyard. Adding more soil to this thing is on my to-do list for today and adding another layer of slats will probably be on my husband's "honey do" list for the coming weekend.|
I didn't bother showing the rest of the back bed and the St. Patty's bed this time around because they are hideous. A slew of onions ready for the harvesting, or at least nearly ready, aren't cute by anyone's standards. I'll be pulling both of those beds almost (or maybe completely) up in the next week or two and planting them with some of the broccoli and cabbage I have started or maybe some carrots and greens of some sort. So much potential yet to be had in the garden for the year!
