In May we planted a few potatoes in chicken wire cages, hoping to grow towers of potatoes. Here they are in June. We kept adding more soil (and paper) as they grew.
Here they are today. I don't know how many potatoes are actually growing there, but the greenery is amazing. Five feet high! The plants are in bloom, which bodes well for actual potatoes, but I'm still waiting to see what's really going on in the dirt there. It's been an interesting experiment so far.
You can see that one plant escaped through the bottom and is growing on its own.
I ventured over to PicMonkey this afternoon and created this little collage of things currently in bloom in my garden. I'm not a fan of orange and will likely remove the lilies before next year. I am admiring their multi-layered beauty and think they go well with the blue flowers on either side. In the garden these plants are widely separated, maybe I should re-think that and transplant the lilies in between the blues. Hmmm.
