Things are starting to pick up here as we approach mid-summer. We will be moving in less than two weeks, staying with Grandma for the rest of the summer. Before our big move, I wanted to document what's going on in our humble little patio garden. Enjoy!
|The whole patio crew. Rosemary, basil from seed, basil from starters |
(we got impatient!), spinach , cilantro, lemon thyme, super sweet 100
cherry tomato, angora cherry tomato, and rutgers tomato.
|Plastic windowboxes for basil (lime and sweet) and spinach. |
The spinach went to seed before we even dared pick any.
Perhaps it got too much sun too quickly.
|The first proof that these seedlings really will turn out to be cilantro! |
Funny how the first two leaves look nothing like the actual plant.
|Lemon thyme from a generous friend :-)|
|Verbenum - left over from the group we planted out front.|
|A couple weeks later (just the other day)- cilantro abounds!|
|The Angora cherry plant has far surpassed the others!|
|Angora cherry tomatoes starting to grow|
|In our hanging sweet potato vine basket, a mother robin has built a nest. |
It wasn't until uploading this picture that I realized there's an EGG in there!
|The Super sweet 100 tomato - not looking like it will produce even 10,|
let alone 100 tomatoes. Oh well, at least the basil is thriving!
