Post apocalyptic gardening

Driving around on the west side I saw this beauty...  Evocative of a post apocalyptic dystopia, I thought this was a great example of extreme urban gardening.  It looks like they're mostly growing tomatoes and aloe vera, but the whole set up is kinda fun. I also thought the water bottles in the front were interesting, not sure if they are collecting rain water or something else. Maybe it's just watching too much "The Walking Dead", but I think I could get into this. This may be my future.

The Constant Gardener

I'm very pleased to share Cindy McNatt's profile on me and my garden in last Saurday's OC Register! Most of the photos are from a year and half ago, but the article was just sweet as pie!

Playing rough: Blog inspiration turned mini obsession

So last week I read one of Denise's posts on A Growing Obsession about "a diamond in the rough".  She was reposting on a concrete diamond project. Well, I printed out the original template and kinda went nuts.  And to my critics I say isn't this better than most addictions?!!

Take a look at will most likely be the tip of a big iceberg.
