Yum! Spinach can be used many different ways and is so healthy. Your plants look terrific. Im using old tank water on my plants and they are doing well but behind where they should be due to the cool spring here.

My mom kept a couple different gardens too, I prefer fresh to canned, unless it peaches, then I don't care... cuz they're peaches, and those are ALWAYS delicious! lol

We have a little bit of a patio that I have everything crammed on, I think this growing season will be the last for the tomato bin, it's majorly cracked on the one side. the benefit of most of them being potted? The perennials like the rhubarb and the roses get to come with us when we move. I should get a photo of the whole patio with the greenery everywhere.

I've been lazy about recycling tank water but surprisingly, the water from the hose has them growing like weeds!! ^_^

Now we need pictures of your garden, CJ!

No strawberry shrubs? There are types that can even be grown in pots indoors. It looks so yummy.

This is going to sound silly... But, supposedly, ants really hate cinnamon sticks and will avoid them. You could place them around your plants as a natural repellent. They also don't like garlic, peppermint, catnip, rosemary, lavendar, thyme, basil, and aromatic stuff like that. You can just plant some of the herbs nearby too.
