Perhaps you recall the pitiful boat we bought in Florida which we fixed up and never used because we sold our home there. That was five years ago. This recent boat was a long time coming since we've wanted to explore the lakes ever since we moved here. We would have rented a boat but the cost is exorbitant.

In the second bin I've planted squash and fennel. Where the stepping stones jog to the right I planted three more tomato plants in the ground. I had the tomato cages which I placed up against the bin and wired them to the bin to keep the wind from knocking them over and down the hill. In the first bin all I planted (basil, peppers, cucumbers, and eggplant) have doubled in size. Even though it's been rainy and cloudy plants are still growing. To the right of the stepping stones I have added some lavender and spanish tarragon plants.
In the bin in my upper garden the lettuce is almost completely gone and so is the broccolini. I plan to grow a few okra plants there because it gets lots of sun. I do like fresh baked okra. We shall see how successful I am at growing okra in a bin.
This past winter was long and depressing to me; I'm so glad it's warm and everything is growing again. Some may spend money in their budget on shoes or ... I spend a wee bit of my income on home improvement or landscaping projects because I can enjoy the results every day. If I do a few projects every year, my landscape will soon be full of wonderful garden vignettes. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
