Potting Soil Bag Gardening

 As it turns out, my desperation to find additional containers to hold my extra plants this Spring worked out very well.  After I ran out of pots and still had some tomatoes and cukes to plant, I grabbed bags of soil, pierced them with my spade and stuck the plants in them.  They love it.  These cucumbers are going a bit crazy.  They love the heat from the driveway.  The plastic bags hold the water very well even though there are lots of drainage holes.

 And these tomatoes were almost goners before I stuck them in these bags.  They are very happy tomato campers now.

 My potatoes are flowering.  This is the first year I have planted them.

 What are these?  They are on my tomato plants.  Are my potatoes growing tomatoes?

 The horse watering trough garden is thriving.

 I'm growing morning glories over the cage on my potting bench.

My okra started out really slowly but now that we have sweltering heat, it is thriving.
But Fall is on the way!  Look how dark the oakleaf hydrangeas are already.
