My Container Garden

Good evening, all!  I was relaxing on the deck after work today, and I thought that I would share some pictures of my little garden with y ou.  As usual, I’m mostly growing herbs, but I’m also trying tomatoes and hot peppers this year – in Topsy Turvy planters!   I planted a tomato plant in the Topsy Turvy, and another in a regular container.  Funny thing -My Topsy Turvy tomato already has flowers on it, but not the container tomatos!  So it’s a bit of an experiment, but so far the Topsy Turvy is winning :)I also have a lovely grouping of container plants on the patio – some cute little red flowers (I forget the name), my Bay tree (who is very happy to be outside) and a couple of Spiralis plants.  The Spiralis plants are my favorites, just because they’re all boingy and fun.

I’ve attached some photos for your enjoyment!  I’ll do a seperate post to talk about my CSA this year, just so this one doesn’t get too long.

Topsy Turvy tomatoes! (Alright, soon to be tomatos)

The Spiralis plants are in the terracotta pots – very cool looking plants!

My Topsy Turvy pepper plant – jalepenos, habenaros and thai chillis!

Flowers on the pepper plant!

And my herb “garden”! Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, Sage, Garlic Chives and Mint.
