Planting time...finally

The sun finally came back out and it warm and dry enough to plant my new garden box!

I have 5 tomato plants this year:
  • 3 yellow pear shaped (from saved seeds)
  • 1 heirloom apparently striped traded with a friend for a little yellow plant
  • 1 purchased Big Boy plant
We planted 3 kinds of peppers, chives, french thyme, basil and green onions. Although I don't have much hope for the onions.

Marigolds are planted along the front edge of the garden to try to detour the bunnies and deer from snacking.

As in previous years, I  have more herbs in containers on the deck as well as this year's experiment, bib lettuce.

You know how to pack a lot of plants in a very small space. I bet your container garden is weed free and wonderful. I love that new box. I still have not planted my herbs. Must do that soon.

Halle
thank you for the kind comments on my blog on my recent enchanted room project.
I loved reading your garden post as we recently moved into a home on a large lot and planted a garden 1 week ago...however I think the cold temps that came into Michigan last week may have done some damage...we will try again as we want to have veggies! Happy Gardening!
