My Little Herb Garden in Pots...

Well, I decided to take the plunge and grow a few herbs...haven't done this for over twenty years...I hope I still have a green thumb! We bought this lovely tomato plant...I'm not that good yet! The bird feeder pic is pretty with the tree leaves now out...We have had a week of rain and the trees are such a brilliant green now. This is a flowering elder...I'll take pics when it blooms.

Have a great week!

Good luck with the herb growing! I would love to try that out one day, but I live in an apartment. My only outdoor area is a little balcony, but it doesn't get any sun except for maybe an hour or two a day. Maybe someday. Yours look beautiful, though!

Oh this is great, you will love having herbs, we grow them in a huge pot too and it is on the deck so just off the kitchen :)
I am between Niagara Falls and Toronto.

Herbs are pretty easy to grow so I'm sure you will do great. I'm with you on the tomatoes, I always get them from plants. I've never done them from seeds.

Looks great Nancy! My sister-in-law grows the greatest cherry tomatoes on her deck. It works really well. Good luck and remember to give them lots of water when it gets hot (they dry out really fast in containers).

It looks really pretty!

Nothing like fresh herbs..
my fave is some fresh basil
good for salads and pastas..
and a bit of mint for sweet tea

Oh, good for you for attempting this. I have never tried it but it is "so Martha"!!

Fresh herbs are the best. They practically grow themselves! Make sure to keep pinching and using and the harvest will be bountiful!
Enjoy, Mandy
