I started planting my garden box today. My garden box is a 4′ by 8′ redwood box – 12″ deep – on 36″ legs. I pulled out parsley and put it in a pot. I added some new dirt. The I put in 4 different tomatoes, a cucumber plant, two different peppers, dill, and some radish seeds. What I forgot is that gardening often involves injury. This time one of my tall garden stakes fell out of the garden. I ignored it. Now I have a large deep scratch with some bruising on my right arm.

    Ouch! How is the cucumber growing? Are you trellising it?

    The cucumber seems very happy. No trellis for now. Since my garden is in a box about 36 inches off the I am hoping both the cucumber and the squash drape dow over the side.
