This summer I spent quite a bit of time with my victory garden on my 6x12 paved over "yard." In April I decided to go out to Staten Island in and stop at Crazy Goat Feeds to pick up a couple of straw bales.
Initially they looked innocent enough as I fed and watered them, but once the tomatoes went in things went a little bonkers. . .

The pumpkins are getting ready to move in once the tomatoes are done.
