The Jasmine Needed Help!
We have mostly put together wooden arbors for our garden. Eventually they rot. We had a metal arbor (and I use that term loosely) that was adequate, but it finally collapsed under the weight of a 2' snowstorm and a very healthy jasmine vine! This arbor is sturdy and beautiful and easy to put together. We purchased it from Plow and Hearth. I have purchased items for our garden for many years from them and have always been pleased. They were sold earlier this year and unlike Smith & Hawkin, they have managed to stay in business. The other good thing about the assembly was there were no Spanish words screamed or uttered while we were putting it together! Always a good thing! Trust me! Here is the finished arbor.
Well-Sweep Herb Farm. If you are in northern New Jersey this summer, check out their farm. They are family-owned herb farm. Cy, Louise and their son, David Hyde do a wonderful job with display gardens, a very nice gift shop and lots of unusual plants, herbs, perennials and annuals.
The only other problem is we can't open the back gate! It opens in and the only slat by the door handle hits the curve in the arbor! Ooops! There weren't even Spanish words then! So once that slat is taken down to size, it will be great! One more project on The Herbal Husband's list! Hope you are having a great day. I forgot to take a photo of my Cheep Room. Hopefully over the weekend! Have a great day wherever you are! Talk to you later.
