Thanks to Everyone!

I missed this site a lot! You guys are so supportive AND I learn so much here. Turan - the only reason I continued to garden this fall was because of Mr. T. He love the kale, arugula, turnip greens. He also loves nasturtium leaves and flowers. If I can remember how to post you will see some volunteer nasturtiums in my "new" garden. Unfortunately, my compost spinner was neglected and I was left without compost - I bought a variety at the big box store and mixed it - hope it works. I know I was lucky to have a fantastic garden last summer. But I noticed that the bed farthest from the fence was MUCH more productive. They get almost the same sun, same watering, and are exactly the same as far as I can tell (except I had to use a lot of the commercial Mel's Mix in the "bad" bed because I miscalculated the amounts). This winter almost nothing grew in the "bad" bed - peas did OK. Any thoughts? I haven't planted much I care about there because I feel that it won't thrive. Anyway, thanks for the support. I am back and Scott was big on veggies!! So I dedicate this garden to him. Will post pictures soon because I forgot that I had to import them first Sad

My worms didn't make it but I am trying again. I have volunteer nasturtiums, garlic, beets that didn't really do that well, chives. The big plant in the back is squash. I LOVE summer squash and used to have to give it away. Past few years - nada.

Had wonderful potatoes last year. The ones in front are volunteers from the scrap pile. I planted Yukon Gold and Pontiac Red in the other containers. It is late but I hope they do well.

Ruger is my newest garden helper. Nitro is still the boss, though.

Isn't it funny how the volunteers always seem to be the biggest and strongest plants in the garden? Maybe they're just bullies.  Rolling Eyes

I know, I think it's Mother Nature's way of showing us who is boss. Smile

Momvet, your boxes are beautiful!  This year I had a volunteer basil plant and some volunteer violas.  The basil plant was a welcome addition because I forgot to plant seeds in early spring.

You are off to a wonderful start.  Keep us posted.  Smile

Is there anything more amazing than violas? My poor little 4" pot, neglected and abused, has bloomed continuously for a year and a half.  Shocked Cool Very Happy
