I’m sure all
four of you has been wondering: What is going on with Suz’s garden?
Well, I’ll tell you… and thanks for asking.
We’ve made an addition.
And when I say
“we” I mean I asked and the Coach DID.
Above is my garden from last year.
(It was raised last year, before that it was the opposite of raised)
Below, the right side is the old garden, the left side is the new addition.
Coach took off the wire fencing from the old garden because it was rusting like crazy; we replaced it with some plastic lattice fencing.
I’m not a fan of plastic, but I think this will keep the bunnies and raccoons out. Hopefully, it will also deter my tomato loving boxers!
The Coach and I had this discussion about the white lattice:
“Do you think it looks trailer park-ish?
Well, it looks like it could be in a NICE trailer park, you know, the high-end retirement trailer parks….and not the trailer parks of our youth”
Listen. We know our trailer parks.
So, I was so excited about doubling my garden space and I was only a little excited about it resembling a high end trailer park. I started my seeds and apparently I started them TOO early.
I was EXCITED…what can I say???
My goal was to have plants in the ground come October when it cooled off ever-so-slightly.
Sadly, I had to put some plants in the ground sooner because they were growing out of the baby pots.
What is a girl to do?
I put some plants in the ground…and then I fretted over the HOT HOT HOT Florida sun.
So, I classed up my trailer park garden….
With what else….
trailer park beach umbrellas!
I know. Genius.
