We have been working in the garden daily. Popping in to share a couple gardening tips on the blog and our Memorial day porch.
I was going to throw out this old rusty garden cart but decided to plop it in the garden to grow tomatoes in. I am trying a couple new varietes of tomatoes in the wheelbarrow. Smaller bush type tomato plants are great for containers. Remember to feed as tomatoes are heavy feeders.
We get a lot of opposums and fruit rats in the garden if we are not careful at outsmarting them. Our backyard vegetable garden is a problem area so I use hardware cloth round cages to grow all my veggies in. You can see this squash is doing great in the critter proof cage. I just reach in and harvest.
Cutting the vegetable protector at least 18 - 24 inches high is important.
I love to add patriotic decor to our porch for the summer holidays from Memorial day through Labor day.
Decorating ideas for the American flag are many but we love to show our pride and display some red white and blue.
I have had this five finger flag bracket for years. I just buy new small American flags ever couple of years.
