Tuesday Garden Party is hosted by http://www.anoregoncottage.com/

I was determined to grow something this year & with the help of Miracle Grow potting soil I did it! I grew something in this hard to get along don't wantta grow nothing dirt LOL LOL, with no tiller..yea what was I thinking! ha! but anyways with the help of a shovel, hoe, post hole diggers & a chair to sit in , LOL I did it, 4 days of getting this little cubby hole on the side of the house ready for my itty bitty garden

I had plans of having ivy & flowers coming outta the old grill back in the corner & a round flower bed in the middle but I think I'm a day late on that LOl oh well next year, now that I've discovered Miracle grow LOL

got the mimosa trimmed the fence, yea yea they're pretty but not when they take over!LOL added mulch hey do I hear you laughing , you spend 4 days breaking up dirt & see if you don't add mulch LOL LOL, the Zena's draw butterflies which is an added bonus

look at me! I grew maters! LOL the squash is still standing so we'll see if we get anything from them
taa Daa! my Herb garden! LOL I've always wanted to grow herbs , wasn't sure what to do with them &I'm actually trying them out in new recipes , my 1st time to but balsamic vinegar, easy right? go to store buy bottle that says balsamic ha ha 2 shelves full to choose from LOL LOL

and last but not least, saw this little fellow in the dollor store & knew I had to have him , he come with his own clay pot that he's glued to, the edge is craked & crackeled to give a weathered look,isn't he cute , he looks so happy in the garden!

I luv your garden! Proud of you...I haven't had a garden in ...like....I don't even remember.

If I'm healthy enough next spring I'm going to try to grow some tomatoes in large pots.

We shall see.
Have a sweet week and God bless,

Plants just make me happy!! :-)

I have a hard time getting things to grow (we are in the high desert -my husband calls it h*ll with snow), but I do take pleasure in trying. Plus I just love an excuse to play in the dirt, LOL. Your plants look great!

You DO have a lovely garden! Your yellow florals add such prettiness.

Welcome to the Tuesday Garden Party - thanks for sharing your accomplishment! Good for you.

You know, if you'd like to make any more beds without tilling or using a shovel, check out my no-till method and raised bed garden posts. I've never tilled and I don't even dig anymore- I just build a bed and fill it with good soil. :-)
