So, a neighbor owns a 5 acre lot a block away from our home and decided to let people who wanted, grow a garden in an enclosed area on the lot. So, I took him up on it, along with 3 others. I have about 300 square feet and am growing beets, onions, peppers, tomatoes, corn, squash, and cucumbers. It is located right behind the Carpenter Seed store located on the old State Street in Provo. Since these pictures were taken, I have staked up more of the tomatoes and weeded the onions. Notice I used two old stool bases for the tomatoes. They were $1 each at DI, which is about $3 cheaper than the wire cages at a store. Nice, eh?! It is fun to have a garden to take care of, but sometimes hard to take the time to water and care for it. Still, worth it.
