Got a BUNCH of stuff potted up this weekend - decided to pot up a bunch of the veggies, herbs and flowers to take 'em to the new house, rather than plan on doing tons of driving back and forth between the new house and the rental garden plot. I MIGHT still use the garden plot (which they STILL haven't called me about), or I might just blow it off entirely, but then we won't have beans, extra tomatoes, extra squash, pumpkins, etc. I don't know what to do yet...but you can see what I'm doing during my indecision period!
This poor little guy (a summer squash) looks like much of what got planted this weekend - scrawny in a big pot, and lonely. But I'm hoping they'll all turn into big monster plants, with tons of productivity!
Considering how much the potted cherry tomato plants cranked out last summer, I decided to take a risk and put two different varieties in one pot this year... Plus each of the big tomato pots got a pepper plant and some herbs. I guess we'll see who wins!
Oh, and some of them got small flowering annuals - such as the super sweet smelling sweet alyssum here. I LOOOVE these little guys! Companion gardening helps draw in beneficiary insects to help polinate your veggies!
The herbs, all started from seed, are doing great!
Still got plenty of squash and pumpkins that are going to need to be planted SOMEWHERE!
Didn't intend to go quite so patriotic with this planting of annuals.
And don't forget the herbs! MMMM! We're having some of these on grilled chicken tonite.
