Photostory Friday - Instant Garden

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Sometimes we don't get our vegetable seeds started in a timely manner. Then we resort to our local nursery stock to create our instant vegetable garden.

I supervised (and documented) last night as Laurie planted.

Adding used coffee grounds to the soil, courtesy of one of our (many) local coffeehouses.

Stirred, not shaken.

Voila. Tomato plant.

This method does have its instant rewards. This marigold even came with its own ant.

It's own ant? Wow, in this tough economy, they're doing everything to lure you in aren't they?

Ryanne said...

I was able to get mine planted a few weeks ago..first one ever...what ever it takes to get one planted I say! Love the ant...did you have to pay extra? hehehe

Terri said...

Yes, we just couldn't resist that free ant. If it'd been a ladybug, I would have even paid extra!

Jientje said...

Yes, I'd pay extra for a ladybug too!! I haven't seen many up until now? I hope your plants will thrive on the coffee grind, I would too if I was a tomato! LOL!

We had to resort to seedling from the nursery for tomatoes, french beans and cucumbers this year.

At least you have garden, even if it was started before you actually owned it!

Wayne said...

looks like you all got your hands dirty, great photo friday.

I was also wondering if you would like to take part in my post I do every Tuesday? It is called tell a joke Tuesday, so if you know any good jokes I would love for you to take part.

Ive seriously got to plant my own now. Everyone has their tomato plants in :(

Love the marigold and ant!

Anything to get it in!
Every time I think it is warm enough to plant, the weather pulls a mean trick on me like today, super cold and even a bit of snow in JUNE when it has been so hot we played int he sprinklers!
Love the free ant!
