My new planter for greens. Grape vines and our budding fig tree are behind.
My sweet husband has begun our garden. He even built this planter for lettuce and spinach. I saw it on a gardening website and he graciously agreed to make one. I like it because I can snip the new leaves without having to bend over. Pretty ingenious, huh? He's the best husband in the world.
I ran across this poem earlier in the week, and wanted to share it with my fellow gardeners. It's old and I don't know the author, but I like it.
