They all thought we were crazy when we filled our yard with these cattle water troughs. But by June the troughs were hardly noticeable. Is it any wonder why I am itching to get started again this year?
The cucumbers went nuts, as did the zucchini and yellow squash. I had a ton of peppers, some still in the freezer, and so many cantaloupes to share. We have lots more trees this year and already the flowering pears are loaded with buds.
I have started basil indoors, but look at how huge they are in this trough. Onions too! Also in this herb garden are chives, fennel, dill, thyme and parsley. Not a thing left tho, as we are moving this trough away from the window, so we were forced to empty it completely. With gardening we live and learn.
