|Alpine strawberries - can you see my huge crop?|

You'll have to bigify to see the beans popping through the soil.
|Potato plants need to be hilled (aka adding a tire)|
Garlic is going great-guns behind it.
I planted four varieties of potatoes in my hillbilly planters - there are enough old tires around this place to put in a bumper crop. And I like to put stuff to good use, if you haven't already noticed. I am also trying potatoes in a bag (on the right) just for comparison. The plants are growing wonderfully, and I am ready to put on the second tires and hill the plants. Luckily, I don't have to worry about what my neighbors think. Garlic and onions are in the raised bed behind them.
|A perfectly lovely view ... ruined. On a nice morning (like this morning)|
