Sam's Habitat and Garden




Sam, is a very, very fine yam!
Sam is a sweet potato that I started to grow in a pot of water. He rooted and started to sprout and eventually I put him outside in this pot, however it did not have the protective fence or tomato cage. I found Sam twice on the ground as he had been pulled out of the pot by a predator(it must have been Allie, our dog). So, I had to rescue Sam and brought him back into the house, putting him back into his pot of water so that he could be revived after having survived the uprooting. Eventually he began to thrive, and sprouting was rampant. I had to put dowels in the pot to support his growing vines, and last Saturday I felt it was time for him to venture outside again. However, this time was different. Sam would have a real yam habitat. So, the tomato cage and garden wire I had laying around came to good use, and as you can see, Sam has a predator proof habitat. Everyone needs a yam for a pet.

Sunday is a day to get dressed up and sit in your garden. I have planted beans, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, swiss chard, radishes, cabbage, lettuce, egg plant, peas, cilantro, and I threw in some pumpkin seeds. The tomato plants are most healthy, however they are not producing any tomatoes. Do you know a good recipe for tomato vine soup?

The rock border I recently added, had to have something for the ferocious frog to sit on as he guards the garden from the predators of the yard.
