It's Sweet Shot Tuesday for the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents and granny-nanny-ing grandkids. I thought this would be a great day to show off my senior mom's awesome gardening skills and sweet utility garden wagon using my very fun and very easy to use Canon Powershot a1100is digital camera. 🙂
She loves to cook as well as garden and both are fun and healthy senior citizens activities. So a small vegetable garden with her version of raised garden beds – using pots – is perfect for her. Here's her cherry tomatos. Yummm, they are always delicious.
Bell peppers are another very healthy vegetable to grow and love growing side by side with tomatoes. Look, there are even have some green tomatoes growing away.
In addition to planting a raised beds vegetable garden, she has her own mini herbal kitchen garden, complete with growing basil
rosemary plants. Did you notice the cute red snake in the basil photo? She buys kids' plastic snakes and puts them all around her plants to try to discourage the birds from taking early treats. Needless to say, the grandkids get quite a kick out of them.
How does she deal with all these pots when there's a nasty storm brewing? Simple. She pops them into one of her two garden wagons and takes them to the garage. She also easily moves them from sun to shade with these handy-dandy helpers of hers.
And boy, my senior mom is going to want to check into this handy Rubbermaid cart to hold her gardening tools.
