Tomatoes and Squash This Year

It was large clay pot gardening this year since the tiny poolside plot used last year got cramped and crowded. Hard to find space around a pool and hard to water out there.

Here’s some early shots. I don’t mind dead lawn spots since the grass never grew well here anyway. But it does make mowing the tiny lawn harder.

I do have a tiny battery powered mower though, to get in between pots.

Fertilized with Miracle Grow on planting and then every 3-4 weeks.

Last year’s garden was upper/left, poolside. Tiny and hard to water.



The zucchinis were very tasty. They varied in  color.

Never enough space or support so stakes were added.

Everything came in nicely so no store-bought ‘mators or squash needed.

Usually eaten right off the plant.


These and cottage cheese are a standard breakfast this time of year.

All are very sweet, especially the Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes.

  1. You don’t really need a lot of space or many plants to grow plenty of vegetables either, and the taste beats the store-bought kind every time. Thanks for the comment.
