One of the perks of blogging is getting to know people that I would never have met otherwise. One of these is from the neighboring state of Virginia. She calls herself Possum and her informative blog is “My Little Corner of the World”. A friend and I actually visited her a few years back and were in awe of her gardening expertise, as shown here:
But, as lovely as this is it doesn't tell the whole story. She was in a severe auto accident back in the 70’s and it has greatly impeded her ability to garden. Bending over or sitting on the ground, or even on a low stool, is almost impossible for her so, rather than give up, Possum took it as a challenge and the outcome is what she calls her “Stand-uppidty garden”.
She uses a 100 gallon Big Bag Bed from Smart Pots.
They come in a variety of sizes and can be used for any and all of the projects in her amazing garden. The largest bag opens to a diameter of 4 feet and holds as much potting soil as a 4x4 garden. It is extremely sturdy and she can make as many “uppity” gardens as she wants by just putting a Big Bag Bed on top of a sturdy base.
And the smaller bags? They come with the complete endorsement of the many cats who roam and relax in this outdoor paradise !
