.Welcome to my mini garden!
This pot has 2 Heat Wave Tomatoes, a clump of peppermint (Mojitos!!!), and a Better Boy Tomato.
This little pot has two clumps of cilantro. I love cilantro in so many dishes. I just love cilantro!
This on has 3 Better Boys. I bought these on a whim. The were small plants, but already budding and they were on sale, 4 for $2. Couldn't pass it by!
This pot has 2 Beefsteak tomatoes, a clump of dill (love dill on my fish) and a clump of chives (Potatoes!! Cottage cheese!!).
I "fenced" them in with $10 of wire fencing. I could only get chicken wire by 100 feet bundles, and I couldn't think of anything I'd use it for. This was a little more expensive per foot, but I don't have something to store that I may never use. And I'm glad I bought it, because in retrospect, it is much sturdier.
Why do I need the fence?
Jazi demonstrates for you. I can't keep these dogs out of plants!
Then on the fun side, I got some little impatients, red ones and white ones. I found these cool lined iron baskets. Aren't those the bomb? I can't wait for the little plants to fill the space and bloom all over the place.
And I got some petunias in a basket.
And two baskets of double petunias.
I wanted some begonias, but the place I went to today didn't have them. I'll pick some up on a different day.
I put geraniums in the iron kettles a couple weeks ago. They are little starter plants. They were about 4-5 inches tall and they are now about 8 inches and branching out. And a couple are already budding! I think they will be beautiful in about a month. Can't wait!
Mums in those iron kettles are coming back from last year, and the grasses I planted in them are greening up, too. I put some daisy and marigold seed in the pots today, too. They should all be filled out and looking wonderful soon.
Lastly I randomly scattered some wildflower seed. I have more to put out, but I'm done for today. I will do the rest on the next day without falling rain. Hopefully my house will surrounded with beautiful, amazing colors for the remainder of the summer!
