White trash gardening

November 15, 2010

Or so it appears

What?

Top to bottom:

1 What falls out of massive Brandywine bushes after the first freeze when you pull them off of the flower beds they were smothering.
2 The hoop tunnel with various scavenged water containers placed among the young plants. Why? Water is a decent heat sink, collecting heat during the day to disperse overnight. Ideally they are worth another degree or two of freeze protection once the cold nights are really here.
3. Taking down the gourd tower; it is laying on the bean trellis after being untethered and eased down.
4. Closer shot of the gourds that were in the top of the tower as it lies on the bean trellis.
5. The gourds in various stages of drying on Lizzie’s porch. ( Some won’t make it.)

    Maybe we can tow a couple of old cars into your back yard………once the roof rusts out, the old car is a great planter.
