The Veggie Wedgie and the Found Object Garden
The Found Object Vegetable Garden
In the photo above from 1999, the pear is just a little guy, as are the Alberta Spruce and trumpet vine. Many plants were retained; some moved like the peonies. Others, like the Chamaecyparis, azalea and Clematis, found new, loving gardens in which to grow and prosper. The retaining wall is now capped and is a raised bed in the center of my back yard. And if you want to see some of the construction and finished kitchen and garden, stop in on the post at Green Apples, In the Kitchen with Blue. You see inside the home, and what I see outside from within. A great post on design.
And the messy corner I talk about, but never show…. imagine 5 of these tubs! The real Full Monty. They are sort of found objects. Big trees are potted in them and when delivered to a job site, if not needed for reuse, like these flimsy ones, are discarded.
