Early in the spring we had our patio screened in so we can sit out there this summer without getting attacked by mosquitos... or this guy*! Yikes!
Then I went a little nuts and decided to really start in on this patio garden project. I started seeds for tomatoes, cilantro, peppers (both sweet and hot!) and waited to see what would happen.
This tree we bought just last weekend. It's an avocado tree. If I get one avocado off of it I'll be surprised, and totally giddy!
The pepper plants are thriving and about to flower too! I can already taste the salsa!
But no salsa is complete without cilantro! The cilantro has already been used a lot (out of the other pots) and it's kindly regenerating itself.
And here's a gratuitous picture of Ben. Just because he's cute!
After the success of the first round of seeds I decided to try some more. We then planted carrots, green onions, thyme, basil, and spinach. MMMM
I hope my little garden continues to thrive (thanks to my husband who remembers to water them far more often than I do) and actually produces the veggies I desire.
*While alligators are not commonly likely to attack people I don't like the looks of this fellow. He's not like the skinny 2-3 foot gators we saw last year. He's BIG and in.my.back.yard. So, he stays close to the water. I still don't approve.
