who buys that???Friday, May 09, 2008
I'd love to have gardens filled with gorgeous flowers around our yard. If only I loved to garden. This probably comes as a disappointment to some of you, because I know there are some fabulous gardeners out there. However, at this point in my life, I just don't love to do it. I hate to weed. I never water. I just find that the time it takes to tend to a garden would be better spent knitting. Or sewing. Or just being. The one thing I love most is flowers inside. So truly. I just really need a cutting garden.
So, a couple of years ago, my husband built three raised beds in a corner of our yard. One for vegetables. One for herbs. And the other for my cutting flowers. Just a small area to water. I could even get the kids to help with it.
We saw the commercial about the roll and grow garden. We all laughed and said that is exactly what I need. Charlie said it was like "cheating". I ordered it and rolled it out. We watered. And flowers grew. Just like the commercial said.
We enjoyed flowers from this garden into the fall.
