With food costing tons ... and gas being nothing short of a college education - I am pulling out the stops this year with creative gardening. Case in point ... dearly departed Christmas Tree:
This little guy has sat next to our side door for over 2 years. For some reason - the little lad lost it's will to live this year. I waited a few weeks in the hopes a miracle (AKA a resurrection) would happen. It just wasn't meant to be. Today, this little dead tree became compost. :(
The question became what to do with the pot. The easy fix would be flowers. I do love flowers - the bright colors, the fragrance ... even the buzz of the bumble! Yet - something said I needed to be different.
Viola ... You may not be able to tell, but I planted cucumbers! Yes - I will still plant some in the vegetable garden - but I think it just might be fun to have some growing right next to the door that we use so very much.
Well - if for some reason this wonderful idea doesn't work - there is always flowers!
