SOME PEOPLE PAINT THE TOWN RED, I PAINT MY GARDEN BOXES

The other day I decided I wanted a pop of color in the garden. I come up with projects like this when I am procrastinating on doing other, more important, things.  Projects with quick gratification makes my soul happy, and it needed a little happiness, so I decided procrastination was full speed ahead and painting moved to the top of the to-do list.
BEFORE - BORING
AFTER - RAVISHING RED
I decided to show you how horrible my garden is this year. It's absolutely pitiful, with a capital P.
Want to know how many carrots grew? Three. That's right. Three.
Lettuce - zip
Broccoli - nada
Cucumbers - zero
Zucchini - I don't think I need to tell you.

I do have 6 tomato plants with lots of flowers and a few green tomatoes, so that's good.  I've never grown potatoes before and the middle box has those growing.  I'm anxious to harvest those in the fall.

If your garden has a plethora of veggie goodness and you just don't know what to do with it all, you know who you can call because my garden is giving me squat this season.  On the bright side, I have enough carrots for a side dish.

I'm totally stealing this idea! I love it! And maybe I'll show you a picture of our garden so you can feel better ... it's a big fat bed of weeds! The only things growing are leftovers from the former owners' garden!
