Spring Sprung

Several weeks ago actually. I'll be doing my fourth grass mowing tomorrow. The tulips and daffodils and other bulb flowers are spent and the hostas and iris's are coming up nicely. Later today I'll be harvesting my first rhubarb for the season and soon I'll be planting tomatoes and other veggies. I'm trying something new this year, Straw Bale Gardening where you use a straw bale as a planter. I'm doing this on my front stoop to see if the animals who like my garden way to much won't come up the steps. I'll also plant tomatoes in the garden for them.

After I got the straw bales my neighbor told me about the Mobile Vegetable Patch which I would have liked even better. Just fill the base with water and you're done.
