    I love your pictures! Do you some pictures of your backyard garden, yet? I would love to see some of those!

    Wellll... there's a LOT of shade in our new yard, so we kept the containers for the rest of this summer and moved them around while we evaluated where we'd like to place the spring garden.
    Looking for suggestions for fall/winter containers! :)

    How did it go in your new big back yard?

    Love the container plantings. Anything grown on the second story or above always tastes better. Congratulations on Farmer of the Day.

    @CJStAugustine... yes, our cats do get at our seedlings. In fact, we had to start pepper seeds three times because as soon as they got leaves, the cats ate them. We ended up putting most pots on a high windowsill or on top of the refrigerator.

    Do your cats bother the plants/seedlings? Our one cat used to hide in our first raised garden bed after it was established. We have a larger garden now and fence it off, but one kitten climbs over the fence but doesnt bother anything. He likes to be in there when we are and watch the chickens on the other side of the fence.
