With some containers purchased, it was time to get this garden started.
We now have two tomato plants started.
I want to purchase a couple of plant dolly’s so I can easily move them if necessary.
Three hanging baskets of strawberries.
I promise there are strawberry crowns planted in those baskets. I’m hoping hubby can help me get them hung this weekend and then we’ll keep our fingers crossed for successful growth.
I also planted Serrano pepper seeds and Marigold seeds in a couple small pots. Hopefully they’ll take root and I’ll transplant them into bigger pots in a few weeks.
We also bought some terra-cotta pots and spent a few hours of our afternoon sitting outside painting them.
Lili planted some Impatiens seeds in one of the pots she painted. Naomi has picked out a couple different flower seed packets and we’ll be planting those in the next few days. I will also be planting some herbs in the smaller pots.
We really enjoyed the painting project and will soon make another trip for more pots in a variety of sizes.
Now that we have started our container gardening project, I seem to have more and more ideas. I love the splash of color the pots add to the landscape and the thought of some fresh fruits and vegetables in our future makes me happy.
