Broccoli that is flourishing!  Thanks Kully!

Pink Chard!  And we have some yellow too!  So nice to see more color than green.

Basil blossoming.  When I need a pick me up I just stick my head in this pot.  So refreshing!

Chives blowing in the breeze.

Lopsided Oregano.  Even though I put seeds in the entire pot, it only grew in 3/4.  Odd.  But I totally thought it wasn’t going to grow at all since the ones I started indoors completely flopped, literally and figuratively.  So I’m happy!

And now my mind is stirring with ideas to use my fresh produce and herbs.  I absolutely cannot wait for my peas for salads and snacking!

What’s your favorite vegetable picked straight from the garden?

  1. Does your basil eveuntually get woody in the planter?

    • Last year was the first time I planted it, and it was in an even smaller pot. I don’t remember it getting woody. By the end of the season it was fizzling out, but that’s to be expected.
