OK...I did it!

I got outside early this morning and finally revised the tires. You can see my three succulent tires in the sidebar. This long view shows the 5 tires now on the ground and planted with collard green seeds. It says it will be about 20 days to see the seedlings popping through...I can hardly wait. I planted way more than the tires can accomodate...so I will have to set up more pots or dig a plot in the ground for all of the overflow!

Buddha and my strawberry pot full of Kalanchoe say hello!

My grass is finally starting to grow back in now that the sprinkler system has been fixed and every area is getting water twice a week now! YEAH!

And now...here are a few shots of my garden assistant!!! (She wasn't there for the planting, but for the photoshoot)...perfect timing!!! LOL!

Good for you Julie. Your assistant is adorable.

good work... can't wait to see them grow. As for the overflow plants... I guess you could transplant them... but the young leaves are very tender and can be mixed into salads. Just a thought...

That's really awesome.

I can't believe I like tire planters, when I was a kid I thought they were the dumbest and ugliest idea.

Nothing like 20+ years to make you come around to appreciate a good idea, eh?

I wish Hubby would let me use tires. We've argued about it a zillion times! He just got new tires on his jeep and wouldn't let me keep the old ones for the garden. Why????Why???
Yours look just fine. ah well.

Julie you are so right. Thank You. It has become too much for me again, but I intend to come back in the New Year. Emily June is just adorable, and I am sorry to read of your loss. Thanks for always standing by with your kind words. I will stay in touch.

Love,
Sue
