It has come to my attention that folks no longer know what these are – they’re tires cut and turned inside out to make planters. If you look inside some you can still see the tire treads. When I first moved to Petworth these were ubiquitous. We debated their ascetics once back in the day. As was the case then I still like ‘em. Obviously the ones with plants/flowers are nicer than the ones with weeds :)

Full admission: When I first saw these I had no idea what they were either.

“From Mt Pleasant. This includes lots of varieties: 7 kinds of tomato, 5 types of cucumber, 3 different peppers, two types of kale, an assortment of beans, bouquet of basil and some bonus sunflowers.”

Ed. Note: This is the last week of garden haul so I won’t be able to accept any new photos for this year – but don’t worry we’ll be back to feature your awesome hauls again next summer!

Awesome!

“we have had quite the bounty on our balcony this year. The attached photo includes shiso, mint, Thai basil, conventional basil, Thai chilis, cayenne peppers, and jalapeño peppers. We still have a lot more growing on the plants, plus are waiting for our chili de arbol and other hot peppers to ripen.”
