Our Container Garden Begins

I haven't been blogging lately. Too busy. I'm getting old. I was laying tiles yesterday, and now my whole body aches. Yeeesh. Anyway, now I'm playing catch up.

April 25, our Container Garden begins. Last year I bought these huge terra cotta planters from IKEA for $5. I wish I had bought more! I didn't realize they were $20+ at regular stores. Oh well.


We planted Red Patio Tomotoes.


Little Yellow Bell Tomotoes



Patio Wonder Peas



We also had a ton of expired seed packets. Half from 1998 and the other half from 2001. So, on my mother with the most unbelieveable green thumbs suggestion, I dumped them all into various pots to see what would grow. (Did you notice how nicely the strawberry plants in the blue pot are growing!)

  1. Just don't give up too soon, some things take longer to germinate than others. ;-)
    Your strawberries look lovely, the squirrels took all of mine..yes took them..don't know where. I suppose they have tons of strawberries growing up at the top of a tree somewhere..maybe they'll share?
