Art thieves in the garden?

By Penny Stine

This year, I was determined to create a whimsical, fun and beautiful garden, which is why I created pathways, planted more flowers and tried to find garden art for one of my gardens. Yes, one of my gardens… I actually have three separate garden spaces in various places in my yard, created as I search in vain for the perfect spot to grow tasty things to eat.

I got this way cool piece of old farm equipment from a friend whose family used to run a dairy farm in Loma. Her husband collected old farm equipment, trucks, hand tools, gadgets and other treasures for years. I’m pretty sure it’s a potato digger (or it could be a planter); either way, it was meant to be pulled behind a plow horse. I thought it would look cool in the garden with pole beans and morning glories trailing all over it.

When I had too much corn seed for the two spots I was originally going to plant corn, I threw the seed in a border around the planting bed with the potato digger.

Then God made everything grow.

Now I can’t find the potato digger anywhere. I’m sure it’s still there since I trip over it every time I’m walking down the pathways, which seemed plenty wide enough when I made them in April. They’re still large in the shady parts of the garden, but where the sun shines brilliantly, the garden has taken over. Just the way I like it.

Next year, I think I’ll try cantaloupe in the planting bed with the potato digger and I’ll look for an old door or something equally tall for the pole beans to climb. Not sure where I’ll plant corn.

Anybody have photos of other interesting pieces of garden art to share? E-mail them to letsgetdirty@gjsentinel.com.
