I have passed in to middle age as I now have become a gardener. I built a 98 sq. ft. garden in my backyard that holds 16 tomato plants and 11 squash (green and yellow) plants. I am very excited. I plan on eating a tomato with every meal. I planted some "big boy", "celebrity" and "cherry" tomatoes. I really enjoy working in the yard. As you can see from the pics I have 8 trees that I have planted in the 5 years I have owned this house. I also built a shed and the covered deck that you see. This week I have also been working on transforming one corner of my yard in to a huge flower bed that houses a climbing terrace for a passion flower vine, some tulips that my grandma gave me that came directly out of her mother's garden. She has been keeping them alive ever since her mother passed away over 15 years ago. I also purchased a couple of large moss rocks and planted some bouganvillas, cactus, ice plant, hearty hibiscus and yellow mums. I think it is going to look really good when everything grows in. Also, notice my garden helpers. My plaster owl and rubber snake keep watch over my garden in order to keep the birds away. I have a BB gun for the ones that aren't scared off.
