This is how my original container garden looked in April of 2010.
1″ x 12″ wide lumber atop two concrete blocks formed the shelves for the containers. This was to foil the bunnies that ate my ground-based container veggies the year before. The bunnies have been thwarted, but the squirrels and canyon rats just laugh at me, since they’re great at climbing and jumping.)
Beets appear in the left-most container, carefully poking out of the mulch sheet. The red mulch sheet is for tomoatoes, and you can see a staking kit for tomatoes on the far right-side box.
Things were much simpler then, but it was a good small learning experience. Those beets were great, too!
On the left, you see the dwarf peach tree, whose blossoms appear elsewhere in this blog. Years ago, when our son, Robert, was young, he’d use a wiffle bat to line-drive those little peaches into fence. Natural T-Ball! (It was funny, in retrospect. At the time, I wasn’t amused. ;^) )
