Project Name & Page Link: Herb Garden
Brief Description: Every year I plant a little herb garden on my patio or porch. It brings me joy & happiness throughout the summer and fall, as I go out and snip some fresh herbs to add to dinner. This year’s selection includes lemon balm, mint, cilantro, purple basil, parsley, chives, thyme, and sweet basil.

Project Name & Page Link: Flower Plantings
Brief Description: Every time I go to garden center to pick up herbs and potting soil, I’m inspired by the endless flowers I see. This year I swapped out our faded old terracotta colored flower box that lives on the side of the mailbox/postal fortress for a new black one and filled it with flowers, filled the pots on our front steps, filled the teacup pot on my porch, AND I added two large new flower boxes on the railings of our deck. The plantings should grow out to trail gracefully out of the boxes.

Project Name & Page Link: Vegetable Garden
Brief Description: Last year I ended up adding in 2 pepper plants to my usual herb garden, one bell and one jalapeno. The jalapeno went nuts, and I made tons of salsa and pepper jelly for Christmas gifts.
So this year I snuck a tiny veggie patch into my normal few herbs & flowers plantings. It includes a jalapeno, a ‘coolapeno’ (a flavorful but not hot variety of jalapenos), spinach, lettuce mix, Swiss Chard, pak choy, red romaine, and a tomato plant.
