Yeah! I found the disc with pictures from our garden’s first year. These were taken in mid to late summer, 2006.

This is a view of the vegetable garden and the full-sun flower beds, 2006.

In the pictures (today’s and the ones in the last post) you’ll notice an old wooden chest and an old washboard. I have a passion for antiques and love scouting Estate sales and auctions. I keep an eye out for items that make unique planters. I found the wooden chest, washboard and an old milk pail (which sits by our small garden gate) all at the same Estate sale – score! 

I like to fill the milk pail with white Allysum, which spills over the sides and looks like a pail full of frothing milk. I don’t seem to have any pictures of it, but I will take some this summer and post them.

The wooden chest was lying on the property amid a bunch of “junk”. I noticed that several people looked at it and after lifting the lid, closed it and hurried off, not giving the chest a second glance. When I went to investigate I discovered the reason for their hasty retreat; the chest was a treasure trove of wasps. As it was an early spring morning the wasps were lethargic, so I carefully took the nest out of the chest and placed it inside another wooden box, which was in worse shape, and took my treasure home. With a little TLC, it has since made a beautiful planter for our garden. 

That’s it, all the pictures of our garden’s first and second seasons. I hope you enjoyed them! 

Happy gardening!
