Urban Garden

I planted two gardens this year. I planted my garden as usual at the family homestead and then when given the opportunity to plow up the back yard of my quad-plex apartment I jumped! Thus births my urban garden. It's small to me, although in comparison to the few I've noticed in my neighborhood, pretty large. My first attempts at planting resulted in a nice deconstruction by the neighborhood rabbits. I was so mad, they demolished everything. I then replanted some tomatoes, put up some makeshift cages and left for a week of vacation. I was delighted to come home from vacation and still have a garden. My tomatoes, peppers, beans, and squash are doing quite well now. I have also planted corn and plan to put in some okra and more beans soon.
I'm really enjoying my little cucumber bed I created.
Rain barrel installed thanks to landlord Bob!

This picture is horrible. I must mulch in the next 5 minutes as well.
A few pots just to be safe and up and away from critters.

  1. lol Welcome to city life with animals. Not that you didn't have any in Mo., but seems like they are more plentiful in Kansas. :)) Sounds like you have a great landlord!!
