I am trying something new this year with the cucumbers. I made two towers and am going to trya nd train the cucumbers to grow up them. I've seen photos of people's gardens where they have done this with some success. Hope it works out because we don't have the space to let these things just meander.
My daughter and I also took on a small art project and we added painted windows to the side of the garage. They look nice and the back yard has shaped up pretty good this year. I have two more projects that I'd like to finish before the end of the year though: I'd like to attack the gutters and finish that mosaic.
