This years containers garden

This is this years containers garden. We have 3 cherry tomatoes plants, which have been very good this year!! Two basil plants. Two chives plants. One thyme and one parsley, flat leaf plant.
This container garden has done really well. We started them all out by seed. We did not loose even one seed plant. I am going to harvest the basil tomorrow. Wash it well and put it in a towel to dry. Then into the food processor with olive oil and process until just right then into plastic bags and in the freezer. It will be ready to use to put in pesto or in cooking or soup. The basil will leaf out for another crop before the season is over.
I want to thank everybody for all your support on my last post. It means so much to me!

  3. hoo hooo...we had to put the basil pot up high this year too...not so much the squirrels as one slightly furry doggie who seems to love to carry a leaf around in HER mouth. I'm thinkin she thinks it is a breath mint or somethin'
