My favorite part of spring is dragging out my pots and flling them up. Several years ago I got into container gardening, finding that I liked the look on the back porch of all my plants lined up in different sized containers like a large scale flower arrangement. I also found that when you grow plants like tomatoes in a pot with potting soil they grow ridiculously large with abundant fruit. It only takes a plant or two to provide Gene and I with all the harvest we can eat.
There's a small mishmash here of tomatoes, marigolds, rosemary, lavendar, thyme, lemon basil, parsley, nasturtiums, and a geranium. With the flowers I tend to stay close to edible varieties since I love to garnish with them and top salads with them. Those are the nasturtiums, geranium, and I'll soon be adding Sweet Wiliam, plus I have one rose, a beautiful bright rosey red color.
The planting is not over yet. Now that I'm off my weekend work stretch I'll be going to the greenhouse for more dirt, plants, and seeds today. THIS is what spring is all about.
