Sustainable NE Seattle Edible Garden Tour - Part 2

This garden has been nurtured over the last two seasons and has quite a lot of character. Repurposed wine bottles border the raised bed that meanders around the small yard. There are several YouTube videos on how this space evolved from a grass lawn into an edible garden. Be sure to watch parts 1,2, and 3.

Mixed in among the vegetables sits a bust of Homer Simpson, I think it use to be a Chia head.

Cottage cheese and sour cream containers wrapped with copper tape make for good protection against the ever prolific slugs that will consume everything yummy in the garden.  The copper color also adds a nice warm tone to the browns and green of the edible scape.
