Anyone who knows me knows that I have a black thumb. You know, as in can't keep any plant alive, or the polar opposite of a green thumb. Thankfully, D and Jake can grow things and both were really interested in sprucing up our back patio. So, as our afternoon project, the Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf and I set out to plant a container garden.
We have sunlight and we have sand. So, everything needed to live in pots with good soil.
And he told me that everything has to be edible..."otherwise, what's the point?!" Okay. He picked Lemon Boy tomatoes...
Chives, oregano, purple leaf sage....
We also have two kinds of zucchini, eggplant, lemon cucumbers, basil, thyme, and two kinds of mint.
He watered everything while explaining the process to me, Ms. Black Thumb.
Then he put up netting to keep the birds out of his plants.
Hopefully the garden will flourish and we'll be picking all summer long.
If nothing else, it was a beautiful way to spend the day with my Wombat!
