my tire garden

Pansies brighten up the place

Green leaf lettuce growing in a tire

The whole thing

The tire looks a little redneck, I know. But with the short growing season and the ground hardened from permafrost, it proved helpful in retaining heat.  I worked a lot that summer with the DOT, and was out of town week after week, so my garden was small and low-maintenance. Pansies, beans, rhubarb, broccoli, green leaf lettuce, a tomato plant, and some herbs (which never really took off). I love the chore of keeping up a garden, as well as the color that it brings.
