We got busy with the basics last weekend.
I like to container garden simply because then my crop is portable for the most part. I can use all this lush greenery as centerpieces and accents in the outdoor spaces; plus the herbs are nice and close to the house for a quick snip at suppertime. Here's what we'll be having for dinner!
A little fresh, crunchy lettuce for salads and sandwiches.
Some lovely bell pepper.
Fresh oregano is a must on garlic bread.
And we're going to pickle our own spicy peppers for sandwiches.
I have a slight addiction to basil. It's not a problem though. I can quit whenever I want.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme...okay, it's cilantro. We do have parsley. You'll see that in a while.
The rosemary is a few years old and rather enormous.
The first of the tomatoes. The others will go in the raised bed. Oops! Spoiler alert!
And we're about to be treated to a riot of cactus blooms.
The bougainvillea has already forgiven me for its severe pruning.
And I did promise you a fountain project. Well guess what this is going to be...
