In addition to working on my cooking skills, I’m taking a shot at growing veggies this year. My mom is a fantastic cook and has two green thumbs, so I’m hoping her gardening skills will rub off on me as well.
Above is a pickling cucumber plant to go with the bunch of dill I planted.
This is probably my favorite thing I planted – a huge pot of herbs. I’ve got basil, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, sage and parsley. Slayer loves to stop and smell these plants. He’ll smell the basil and then walk around the other side and sniff the rosemary for a bit.
Onions and garlic – my mom has planted onion before, but the garlic is an experiment. Everything sprouted so I guess I’m on the right track!
Look at the little buds forming!
And I planted a few flowers too – this is a New Guinea Impatient. I’ll shoot my window boxes once they fill in a bit.
I love having fresh veggies right outside my door. Have you planted a container garden? What veggies thrived for you?06.25.10 in house
