How Does Your Garden Grow

My potted garden is officially done.  It was actually done a week or so ago, but I finally got around to taking some photos.  It's fun to take some before and after photos so you can clearly see how well everything grows.

Here are my tomatoes:


I planted four types this year.  I have a yellow pear, grape, Early Girl and Beefsteak.  (You can also see a bit of the outdoor rug I now have on my deck.  I just love it.)

Lettuces:


Strawberries:


I actually planted two different types of strawberries.  Can't remember the names of them.  This one did have a medium size berry growing, but it somehow disappeared.  Found a certain dog climbing up the pot the other day.  I'm going to have to move these higher, cause clearly Joey likes strawberries.  (Heck, he likes anything.)

Orange Pepper:



And finally my herbs:


Thyme, rosemary, Italian parsley and the new player this year...dill (which I've already used in a dill dip, which my son consumed very throughly.)


And of course...my basil.  Made pesto chicken last week and I'm thinking about a pesto pizza next (Krissy's suggestion).


Look who wants to help me water!

Happy Gardening.
