    For the ride home I decided to take a different route to the 3mile line. Eh, I didn't like that country road. Not much to see, more cars, and the road sucked.

      It was. That place used to be a private residence and they hid the home from the street. Now they sold it to someone that opened it up to the public.

      I got miniature roses growing in it. The white pipe is where you add the water to the reservoir at the bottom. So far, I only need to water it every two weeks!

      Nice! I've seen sack gardens with a pebble reservoir going right down the middle for watering. My watermelon vines are growing like crazy but I doubt I'll see any watermelons, unless it stays this hot for awhile :~)
