The Re-purposed Garden

I spent the last few days doing some gardening and we wanted to be very low budget. I made a garden using the rocks we have around the property, and there is plenty of them. We wanted to experiment our first summer here with a small garden to see what will grow, what won't and what could possibly eat our vegetables

This is the old kennel fence we had in Virginia when Jackson's mother had puppies.  I assembled the kennel fences and bought a Garden Gate from Lowe's.  We had chrome kennel fence and a black garden gate, so I spray painted it purple.  Somehow it makes me think of those purple street lights at Disney in Orlando.  We are good to go.

.The old wash bucket is great for planting pansies and herbs.
