A series of experiments.
My garden this year is a series of experiments.
Last year's project was 100% grown in pots and other containers, using fencing and wire plant stands for trellises. Everything was collected around a small temporary green house than was very effective for starting seeds, and protecting small plants from the frost.
This year I decided to recycle some of my potting soil, a small amount of compost, and some of my containers, to make a garden where some plants were in the ground, and some in pots and containers. I did minimal digging, trying a no-dig technique. And I did find myself buying at least 8 bags of potting and garden soil.

|Never did get the plastic on the greenhouse frame. Now it's a trellis.|
|Somewhere under the leaves is a developing Kohlrabi bulb.|
So this year's garden includes tomatoes growing in the ground, and peppers, cucumbers and a couple of other things that are in bags of soil.
|The pumpkin I put in the compost is growing beautifully, using the greenhouse frame as a trellis.|
|More pumpkin vine, and some herbs just spouting.|
|Most of the garden.|
As usual, I can't wait to harvest something, all we have had so far are fresh herbs...on just about everything.
