The Garden that Mr Chiots Built

June 16th, 2012

Mr Chiots isn’t much of a gardener, at least not in the same way I am. He helps with garden tasks, generally those that involve power tools, spud bars or difficult heavy work. He asks lots of questions, loves to look at all the plants and enjoys the garden.
A few years ago he decided that we needed something around the mailbox. I didn’t want to dedicate any of my time towards it, so he decided it would be his garden. He chose the plants, transplanted them, surrounded them with rocks and keeps it weeded.

This year it’s looking very nice and he’s very proud of his little garden.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
