So we have been doing a lot of traveling lately and my poor container garden has not been doing so well. :(...although I have had my first harvest of cherry tomatoes, or maybe I should say tomato. (not plural) Below is a picture of my poor plant dying, but no worries it is on the road to recovery.
Tomato plants are so moody. If you skip a day of watering they look so frail, but can pop right back up to normal with in less then a day! Love it! Along with my yummy tomatoes I planted a few marigolds to keep pests away. In separate containers I have enjoyed chives, basil, rosemary, cilantro and some beautiful pink zenias. Below is a picture of my yummy herbs and sad dying zenias. boo. :( Thank goodness there are farmers markets because this container garden was not all it was hoped to be. :)
On the upside I did happen to take a few pictures of my pink zenias before the dry out. Arn't they cheerful! Sorry I know, I know...I was just a little sad though. This is the fist time I have ever actually grown anything from a seed. So sad to see it die.
...and another thing that makes me smile...the lettuce bowl that was given to me from a good friend who had to move...spinach, kale, something else that sadly was eaten by a bug and yummy edible flowers that taste like the creamsicle soda pop candy things I used to eat when I was a kid. Sorry I have no idea what the name is, but they are surprisingly delicious.
Have a good week!
