The Hijacking of My Grocery Bag Container Garden

Rember my post about the grocery bag container garden?  Well it's gone.  And there he is.  The man who hijacked MY container garden 6 weeks back. Pulled every single one of my plants out of the cloth grocery bags and then planted them directly into the ground in our backyard without discussing it with me.  How dare he!  He's a very, very bad man (imagine that being said in a thick Indian accent) :-)

Yes, I reminded him *again* about how we know nothing about the soil back there.  For all we know the previous gardener sprayed Round Up and who knows what.  So what did he do?  He went and bought garden soil.  The only kind he knows, which is Miracle Gro, in the non organic version. He must have talked to someone who knows something about soil, because he also got chicken poop. And does it look like enough for the huge area we are growing in?  Of course not.  OMG.  Indian dude flexing his macho gardening muscle.   I don't mind that he wants to do the gardening.  I just don't like the way he does it!

And here is how the garden looks today.  These are zucchini squash plants.  We have harvested 3 large zuchini.

Tomato plants, I think only the grape variety...

Beets and rutabagas pulled out today!  

I guess the good thing about moving the plants to this space is that we now have more space to garden....and if we move from this house, the next renters will have a nice bounty of fresh food.  It's all good.  Now we just need to build a fence around it so the dog will stop using it as his bathroom :-/
