I’m now on Day 4 of my vacation, which is unfortunately cleaning day. Yesterday’s gardening day was much more fun.
The Forum suggested I have a gardening blog because I’ve been scheming for months already how to turn my deck into a greenhouse. However, I’m not nearly as garden savvy as my mother, so I don’t think anyone wants my garden advice.
I always want to grow something unusual every year to see if I can make it a hit on a deck….of course, it’s always a flop. Like the year I tried to grow watermelon on my deck. This year, I’m planning to grow a stalk of corn. I’d like to grow blueberries as well, but they seem a little high maintenance. Has anyone out there grown blueberries in a pot on a deck before?
So, I have the basics of flowers, strawberries and tomatoes going on so far. My mother also got me a raised garden box for onions and peppers and whatnot. You’d be surprised at how much of a garden one can have on a deck. I’d be interested to hear about other deck gardens out there. Here are a few pictures of my work in progress:
That box of grass in the corner is for my salad eating cat.
I’ll post a picture of my garden box once it’s planted. If only I could have a peach tree on my deck, too………..
Tell me what’s worked for you with deck gardening.
