Poor Country Boy Gardening

Poor country boy gardening is when you want or need something for your garden and can't afford it. So you get creative on how to get it trading or bartering for it. digging it up out of an empty field or off the side of the road or a neighbors yard.

Can a 'Po' city girl join in ? I love shopping thrift stores and yard sales. Turning junky 'finds' into garden art.

Just  added some pics of some flip flop planters I made the boots were like $15 a pair so i used flip flops instead

I believe mine is one of the silver varieties I have heard it called angles prayers too the leaves open and close with temperatures and light   like a praying hand mine also has a pink bell shaped flower all over it about 3/8 to 1/2 inch size.  mine mounds as a ground cover.  many consider it a weed though and probably half or more of the leafs are 4 leafed. Texas is hard to find things that color most of the time even in winter here  and they are plant and leave alone care can't kill because it comes back from the bulb.

Just found this pic, it looks more like our Irish shamrock.

Jon, I have Oxalis growing in several places in my yard and I love them. Maybe be volunteers from the neighbor (my Mother) she has them growing in a flower bed with buttercups and roses. I thought they were called shamrocks. Learning a lot here.

My lemon cukes grow way bigger than that little thing. I've tried so many different trellis, lean to things to grow my lemon and Armenian cukes on.  The one I thought was really going to do it was 3 ladder things my neighbor helped me build one yr. for the Armenians but they took off and were too delecate to bend them where they needed to go and and and basically the best one so far was the old box spring frame thing w/no springs in it, chained to the garage eves.
