Deck Garden

This year I have gotten a jump on the growing season. This is a wonderful gift from my family for my birthday. These two Earthboxes are perfect for our home. I can keep my plants up on the deck away from the critters of the forest and move them around to catch eight hours of sun. Last year we got my mom one for her deck. She had fabulous results.

As you can see we have sugar snap peas in the back box and lettuce in the front one. Now that the plants have survived a few frosts I hope they will take off. To keep the succession going I'm starting spinach and more lettuce. As summer arrives the deck gets shady. It will be perfect for these crops.
