Florida Backyard Raised Vegetable Garden

Wind Spinner

Just Plain Garden

We are just about in the middle of the fall growing season. Everything that was planted… broccoli, snow peas, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, herbs…. are all doing well. The plants are nice to look at, but it is just a plain old garden.

Another Story

Right after Thanksgiving, Husband Ken returned from his travels with a replacement wind spinner for Grandson Malcolm. He had brought one for each grandchild the previous year, but Malcolm’s did not survive the fierce winds we had here in the last month.

Also, Ken collected the pieces of the one that blew apart and was able to repair it. Now, Malcolm has one in the front yard and one in the backyard.

While it was being repaired, I commented that I kind of liked it. Today a UPS truck delivered my very own In the Breeze 12 Petal Flower with Leaves Double Wheel Garden Spinner. Ken decided I needed one. Glad he did.

A New Level of Garden Cool

If you can’t grow it in the garden, Amazon will provide.

Now, my garden is W-A-Y cool!

If you like decorative lawn ornaments, the company my spinner came from is called In the Breeze. They have lots of really neat, wind-driven gizmos to brighten up your yard.

  • WOW! spinners with colors and all of them named after grand kids, what novel and loving idea! I guess I should take a picture or two of my garden just to keep up! Keep us informed on how you doing with this winter crop!….It is great fun watching the snow up north and all this down here, quite a contrast!
