Watching the Garden Grow

I love all the veggies and flowers we've planted in our backyard.
Our recently acquired mint (thanks again Claire) seems to be doing well in the container I planted it in. I put some leaves in our lemon water and the mint really adds a nice flavor.
Our first baby tomatoes are getting bigger.
Basil & Oregano are doing okay. I read the key is full sun and well-drained soil. The oregano is 'flowering' and I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do...
The Ladybird Cosmos we planted from seeds have done exceptionally well and the flower buds have started blooming.
The red pansy's we put in the shaded planter box are thriving as well. Who knew?

Last but not least, the expanded nasturtium chair corner.

  1. The Nasturtium chair area should be called the "Monet, Katie and Justin Center for Thoughtful Thinking."

    Just an idea.
