Here's a Sugar Pie pumpkin that grew quite well in a driveway border garden. I just tossed up a tripod for it, then trained it up. All of the flowers just grew up, and through it. Smiling

I love it! Hurray! That pumpkin sure is a happy looking vine.

Here's a corner of my "tropical" garden. Note the sugarcane on the left and a little globe basil on the bottom right. They fit right in, in my opinion.

They sure do!

Those tall and slender plants are such great companions for round shaped shrubs. Thumbs up

Onions don't care for my veggie patch, but they do well with my roses! Big Grin

The roses are also healthier than they were without the onions.
