Photohunters: Planter at Home

When I saw that the photohunters themes this week were at home and planter, I knew what I'd use to combine them.
All of the shots in this post are of the planters taken at home in my garden. The first 4 shots are five and six years old.
I used to start vegetables early in the spring and continue growing them late in the fall, using the covers to trap the sun and heat during cold nights.
In addition to the four square planters in the first two shots, I have planters around my daughters old swingset.
The last two shots were taken this week of my home garden planters.
I don't have the energy to garden anymore and I've let my yard turn into a jungle which has started to eat the home garden planters.

Great photos! Gardening is A LOT of hardwork. I don't have the place to grow vegetables, but my Mom used to love to grow vegetables when she was younger, and before she became ill. They always tasted the best :)

Happy photo hunting and weekend Carver!

This is my dream garden!! How lovely to have fresh vegetables and flowers from your own garden. :)

I'm sorry to read you no longer have the energy to garden. I can understand that - I get drained with summer gardening. Also with fighting the animals - I have my plants in a cage, but one cucumber plant grew quite tall, and a deer came and ate all the top leaves. Sigh. Your garden looks a bit like a jungle now.

You have such a lovely garden. A jungle is also charming :)
Happy weekend, Carver!

Those are very interesting planters. I've never seen anything like that.

I don't have the energy to garden on THAT scale! I have a few pots full of herbs and tomatoes... enough to keep me snipping through the season!
