As I wander the streets and the gutters of my 'hood, I look for items that might come in handy in my garden. I am looking for things to get my plants up into the third dimension. The other day I found a blue plastic milk crate, not many lanes away, and hoiked it home. Today was a bit of a struggle as I was trying to take photos at the same time and not scratch Ann's camera that she so trustingly lent me. I didn't scratch it, I hasten to add Ann. *phew*
I will go back later this week and check out the other trays in this pile where the pot plant was. I think only the bottom two will be useful We scavengers must be discerning, you realise.
The chap in the apartment above me - who flew to the New England states of the USA today to experience 'fall' - managed to get me a couple of large black plastic (rectangular) containers from the convent whose garden he maintains. I mentioned that I wanted to start a veggie garden. I have sufficient soil for two tomato rings, and one other 'garden'. Shall go to 'Honeysuckle Garden' in Bondi Junction later this week to decide what to plant. Maybe some spinach. How hard is asparagus? Lots of water. Lots of manure? I will go read about asparagus.
Update: Perhaps, tomato, zucchini, silverbeet and rockmelon. Asparagus takes two years ...
