I like how my tire garden is progressing. The strawberries and blackberries look lush. The irises look good. I have a columbine blooming and a lot of flower seedlings have sprouted. The dill I planted last year is in three of the tires this year.
I planted cucumbers in some of the tires, planning to drape them outside the tires as the vines grow. Larry says they will take over the strawberries. I think I can prevent that and have cucumbers hanging down the sides of the tires. If Larry is right, I'll rip the cucumbers out.
I am thinking about planting a few nasturtiums in the ones that don't have cucumbers, letting them trail down the outsides of the tires.
Larry really thinks gardens should be in rows.
