A new garden

Sunday I made a garden for the first time in many years. I tried to grow a garden before, but got good plants, and no fruit!
Now I made a garden in 3 plastic swimming pools. The large one has many tomato plants, mostly Bigger Boys, and one Roma. I also planted green peppers, spinach, lettuce, yellow squash, zuchinni, cucumbers and some marigolds. I think marigolds keep out squash bugs.

I hope this works, I'll have to water this week, because it is not supposed to rain at all, for a change!

Stay tuned for results!


  1. You will have a great garden! Container gardens work even better because the soil is perfect and they get individual attention minus weeds. We do tomato plants in pots on our decks, high up from the deer who love to eat them!

  2. They are growing nicely, but I do find I have to water more often than I did when I greq a conventional one. I have plants and the seedlings are all coming up.
