Yesterday I started talking about our “garden”. This year I wanted to grow more than just flowers in the yard. BUT we have deer. And raccoons. And birds. Lots of little creatures that love to nibble on everything.
However, I really missed those tomatoes we grew in Alabama. So I got two tomato plants and potted them on the deck. So far, so good.
The kids love watching them grow and getting a chance to pick them. All three tried the first ones that reddened and all three gagged. More for me.
I also planted some herbs. Rosemary, basil, oregano, and cilantro. I have not used them as much as I hoped, but still enough to justify having them.
And, of course, I grew mint. Key ingredient in the mojitos! Must have an abundant supply of mint for the popular summer cocktail.
My potted flowers? They did not survive the early July monsoon. I did my best getting them out of the numerous rainstorms, but they just drowned.
Luckily, the Black-eyed Susans are coming along great. Yes, that is the same spot in the yard that got flooded from all the rain in my earlier video.
