Gardening two days in a row! This may be a new record.
My boss generously gave me two tomato plant. I planted them in front of the pickling cucumbers on the left side.
I added some dark opal basil (there’s an awesome looking recipe in Grow Great Grub that I want to try), two parsley plants, dill, wild columbine, munstead lavender, and four nasturtiums (one climbing, three dwarf).
It’s starting to look good.
At the advice of another co-worker, I uprooted the chocolate mint and planted it in its own pot.
I also purchased some black peppermint and potted it as well.
Apparently mint grows fast and likes to take over the garden, so I suppose it’s safer in its own pot, up and out of the way. Plus, easy access from the kitchen. Bonus.
I still have room for at least three more vegetabley-type things, and maybe some more herbs, but I can’t think what else to plant. Fruit sounds dangerous (birds and squirrels being the main threat), but maybe some zucchini?
Right now, I’m planting pretty much anything I can find that I’ve heard of, or sounds like it’d be good to eat. My garden is going to be delicious when it grows up.1
