Larry’s Vegetable Garden

Growing vegetables … this is something I (Larry Fogelquist) haven’t ever done before… But late this last spring it looked like Spencer was having so much fun with his plants that now I wanted to grow something too.   A very big issue for me growing vegetables here is that we don’t have much space for a garden in the ground… That means that everything I did would have to be in containers.  Can you even grow vegetables in containers?  I’ve only seen em grown in the ground… A quick internet search showed me that not only can you grow vegetables in containers, there were actually advantages to doing so… And with that, I was off and running…

I could go into way too much detail about this… The whole thing was quite an operation.  But fortunately for you, my precious reader, I’m feeling a little lazy at the moment so will spare you my endless description.  So for the moment, I’m just gonna talk with these photos.

It’s early October now… harvest season.  And yes, it may look like I’m bragging about my garden… and yeah, I kinda am… BUT… my main purpose for putting these photos in here is so that next January, when the world is full of endless gloom and despair.  It’s cold outside and everything is dead… I haven’t heard a bird sing in months… my skin is all white and I’ve forgotten what fresh off the vine tomatoes taste like… I can be reminded that at least at one time there was life in those containers that are now sitting empty on our patio.

 

Can't wait to hear what you have to say about this...
