Thank you for sharing your city garden visit with us. (I've never seen a smilebox..very interesting!) Your Uncles really have green thumbs! What a lot of space to grow their garden. I wonder how they got those trees up there (I'm guessing they have grown a lot). They did an amazing job.

What a beautiful garden in the city - we thought at first it was a roof garden.
The pictures are amazing and it looked like you all had fun there. Were the tomatoes delicious?
We used to grow tomatoes - loads of work - but what a taste!
