Nope, that's our garden neighbors dirt, Mase. Ours is the one behind you. The one that someone left carrots and tomato plants (complete with stakes) in for us to dig out and haul away. How kind of them. Thankfully it's not the one behind ours, the one so overgrown with whoknowswhat that I was afraid to let Mason get too close to for fear he'd fall in and I wouldn't be able to fish him out.
So I have 101 square feet to plant. To care for. To plot and dig up and cultivate. I've got no idea here what I'm doing. I just mostly wanted something for Mason and I to do during the day during the summer. Apart from hiding in the house with the air conditioning going mach 5. I think a few carrots, some peas, some peppers and tomatoes? Some flowers for the prettiness factor?
See all those other plots there? They're going to be the nice ones. The ones that are planted on a grid and mapped out with twine. The ones that have plants with fancy names like "Charantais Melon" and "Moonglow Tomato" and "Cream of Saskatchewan Watermelon". The ones that have owners that probably won't forget to come water them. The ones that will reward their owners with a nice, hearty bounty at the end of the season with yummy fruits and perfect vegetables. But I have plans for Mason and I to paint some rocks for decoration around our container. That should count for something, right? As for everything else, the actual gardening part, we'll be winging it.
