Semi Wordless Wednesday

Because, let's face it...apparently I don't know how to be wordless!


You might be a redneck gardener if.....

you plant carrots in old bath tubs....


or tomatillos in old smokers....

oh, girl, don't make me post pictures of my redneck husband's containers!!! You will die laughing!
That's too funny. I am glad we are not the only ones who do that sort of thing.

Awesome!!!

Ok, I'll bite. What is a tomatillo? If I had a bathtub like that , ity would go into the greenhouse for a watering container.

Melodie said...

IanH,

they are kind of like a tomato that grows in a husk,mine are green but they come in other colors I think. They are used in a lot of Mexican dishes and sauces...yummy!

I love the tub!!! I am obsessed with old tubs. The smoker's not bad either. It's country chic.

Great containers! Love the paint job on the bathtub! I love tomatillos. I plan to plant some and peppers so I can make homemade salsa from my garden. Well, that will only happen if I can ever get my planter beds finished and it stops raining.

Kelly said...

My husband thought I was nuts when I suggested planting in old tubs, etc. Guess he's not redneck enough!

I love these planters! But wait, you didn't say whether these were YOURS or you've just been out snapping photos of random redneckers. :-)
C'mon, fess up. I think they're adorable!

Teresa said...

Oh, I should paint my bathtub instead of it being all boring. It still needs plants too. Yours look like they are doing great.

Joanna@BooneDocksWilcox said...

oh I just love recycling.

Amy said...

LOVE those container gardens, Texas style.

Barbara said...

Love it! I will now be on the lookout for some redneck garden containers. Although I do not consider myself a redneck.....big grin.

Jabacue said...

Just found your blog....I'm gonna like it! Great photos!

I *love* your bathtub! What a great way to display the Texas flag. I love it! My family have been native Texans for a long time and my dad was very proud of that fact. He always sported a texas flag on his vehicles. :) He is gone now, but I imagine he displays one in heaven. :D

LindaG said...

What great ideas! Do you do anything particular with the soil you put in to grow with? Or just a lot of compost?
I am loving your blog. Loved the pictures of Clyde, too. :)
