I am moving my garden to the side of my house. I don't know how the idea first started, maybe it was the long distance I had to walk to get fresh greens for my smoothie, maybe it was PG&E looking at the telephone pole in the middle of my old garden for a possible extraction. Who knows?
In the beginning there was a hill in the middle of winter. I had this idea.........
The hill became various leveled platforms.
The hill received two metal planters (completely gopher proof I might add.)
Filling the planters was "loads" and "loads" of fun. My father estimated that there was about 2000lbs of dirt in each planter here. No wonder I have a back ache...
The soil brought forth plants and a harvest!

|Bell peppers and carrots|

I want to thank everyone who helped me with this wonderful garden. The kids got a good dose of sunshine and dirt while doing this project.
