My favorite thing this week

Is this the coolest cutest most useful thing you've ever seen???

Garden buddy got this for me. I love this thing already! It's a garden bucket organizer! It fits right inside a standard 5 gallon bucket and has inside and outside pockets in various sizes. I don't have very much stuff in there right now, just my gloves, knee protector thingy, trowel, the pruning scissor things, vinegar and water spray bottle, and awesome new plant labels (also courtesy of garden buddy) so I won't forget the names of stuff in my garden. The material the bucket protector is made from is a nice heavy canvas and seems like it will last forever! Thank you garden buddy!

Here's a recent picture of the watermelon. I still love this thing. I love the shapes of the leaves and the plant behavior.

Funny conversation with non-gardening-boyfriend:

"do you think it's too late to plant lettuce?"

"YES! IT'S 9:30 PM!"


  1. Too cute! Love your comments. Everyone starts with 'skinny gardens' ... keep on truckin'! I see lots of possibilities ...

  2. That is funny about the lettuce.

    In response to your comment on my blog... I will be watching the NBA draft tonight to see if Indiana gets involved with some blockbuster trade... otherwise, we have no draft picks, either round. We traded them away!

    But before that, I need to thin out my sweet corn that I planted too close together.

  3. You made me laugh out loud. Funny conversation about the lettuce!! :-)

  4. Love the comment about the lettuce!!
    Did you get the kneely pads, (that's what I call them), at Walmart? They are the best! I have tried all kinds, but they are the softest. I even bought extra's in case they don't have them next year.
