Planted some seeds in the planter today. I haven’t done that in the last couple of years because Spud:


is a lawnmower. He cuts down everything in his path.

SpudGuard 20120103

I cut the bottom off of some plastic vegetable trays, loosened the soil, planted the seeds, put the Spudguard in place and used chopsticks to hold them in place. We’ll see how they hold up. I used crunched leaves to mulch them to keep them from drying out between waterings.

I planted some mini peppers:


I was amused to see that some of them were dyed red. I suppose that is a simple way to tell what color the peppers on the parent plant were.
