One of my goals for this Spring/Summer was to start a small container garden on our porch with some of the herbs that I use a lot in cooking. I love cooking with fresh herbs, and what better way than to cut them fresh from your own porch, right?
So, the hubs and I headed over to our neighborhood Wally-World (Wal Mart) for some supplies. I picked up a new planter, 2 small cilantro plants, and a Rosemary plant. From my many mistakes gardening last year, I learned that it's really important to have a container with good drainage. Otherwise, the soil just keeps holding the water and your plants can start molding from the roots up. Not cool!
My aunt visited me the other day and brought me two beautiful flower plants, so I was able to work those into the containers too! Every garden needs some eye-candy, right?
So that's what we have so far! As you can see, our porch is needing a little TLC as well, but at least the flowers have started brightening up the space a little! I'm also planning to start growing some Basil, since I can never seem to find good, fresh basil in the grocery store.
Do you have any gardening planned for this Summer?
