However, inspired by my friend last fall, I wanted to see if I could work more edibles into my gardening overall.
I filled my big pot with a geranium, a few begonias, and then (the edibles!) thyme with purple flowers, variegated creeping thyme, creeping rosemary, purple basil, and lovage. The smaller twin pots on the porch posts got a few begonias and summer savory.
We'll see if they fill out and look lovely and if I remember what each herb is. I'll take pictures in a month or so and report back.
In other gardening news, I'm still mulling how to do a container of carrots or beets. Our peas are up and looking happy. New baby dill plants are growing. Our lettuce is nice and hearty. And I have started a packet of basil seeds inside on the window sill instead of buying plants the way I usually do.
|I planted hen and chicks, a creeping succulent, in Ben's old sneakers. Not edible, just adorable.|
This spring, I pulled out some irises and lily of the valley to make space for a rhubarb plant from my friend Caryn (thanks again, Caryn!). I am hopeful it will take root well enough to survive the summer heat, unlike the last one.
How are your edibles coming along?
