Day 128 - Sow, What Are You Planting Your Veggies In?

Most of us were acutely aware of Super Bowl Sunday (and its sad outcome for those of us Polomalu fans), but how many of you realized that yesterday was........
.... Super Sow Sunday??!! Sow, in honor of this special event that I totally overlooked because I was so busy either cooking, setting up a dozens of extra chairs in our tv room, or watching 5 HOURS of pregame show, I present to you the evolution of the kitchen garden at University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The first few pictures were from last winter when I checking out their winter trial gardens and noticed that the new area being readied for an edible garden.

Growing strawberries in this old levered screen was brilliant!

I returned last fall to learn that the garden was designed so that it could be handicap accessible - elevated tables at wheelchair level.

Container gardening can take so many different forms to delight and assist so many different people.
Sow, (I really like corny garden humor...) what have you got planned for your veggie garden this summer?

Thanks for sharing this garden. I am trying to get a new community garden underway and I found this so inspiring. I love the purple.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Now I have visual support! Dwayne and I made the mistake of taking our brand new puppy up there during one of their scheduled events. That was 3 years ago - and it was hot as the coals in a pit! We couldn't stay long - to much disappointment.

I'll show him these photos tonight. We WILL be making another trip this year - just the two of us. I WILL get to see everything - this time. And he WILL come home and get busy with the ideas he gets to see!

I'm planning more trellising and my dream is of a tall deer foiling fence around the whole garden.
