This year I have a green container garden. Mainly herbs and plants carried over from last year. These photo's were taken almost 3 weeks ago and I am amazed how much growth has happened since then. Here's the grand tour.... Basil with a small amount of parsley. I keep pinching back the basil and it keeps growing thicker and thicker. I have attemped to start two more plantings from seed, but some invisible bug keeps eating the little seedlings. I'll give it another go when I get back from this weekend.
Rosemary is the large plant. I have been grilling potatoes and steak with fresh springs off this plant and its all been delicious. This week I made my first ever lavender/rosemary hair rinse. It made my hair so shiny and I didn't even have to use conditioner to detangle. Amazing stuff. You can make out a few cilantro seedlings in the pot to the left.
This gerber daisy plant/ sweet potato vine is 3 years old. I have this pot when I lived in MI and my Mom was the first one to bring it inside before a frost and it keeps on surviving.
I charge by the minute to hang out next to this pot. Dwarf lavender (which is so fragrant even as foliage) and lambsears. It's so relaxing to sit and pet the lambsears and smell the lavender. All your troubles fade away! If you have a keen eye, you'll also notice a random sage plant in the pot too. When I bought the oregano and thyme the checkout lady gave me the sage plant for free. And I didn't have an extra pot so it landed there.
Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
