Baldwin City, KS Vegetable Garden
My gardens are almost too crowded. The top photo is the entrance to the larger garden that features an aggressive grape vine that has grown along the top of the fence, along the rails of the metal gate and now has latched onto the maple tree. A few feet inside the garden are some of the tomato plants with red "water walls" that I bought from gardeners.com. Behind those are honeysuckle and various vines that grow on the dog kennels.
Cucumbers like the Baldwin weather. Every year I have enough cucumbers to make three or four cases of pickles. Here the vines grow up an old metal stand that I previously used for pole beans.
