My little Garden

I decided to grow a small garden this year. Last year I tried a bigger one and it, along with the weather, was a disaster. So I am trying container gardening again this year. I had success the year before, so why not?

This is my basil. :) Sweet, sweet basil.

 My lavender. It is from last year and is looking kind of scraggley, lol.
I am hoping for a miraculous recovery though!

These are my little onion chives. I almost pulled them out of the dirt before I realized what they were, lol. I think they will do quite well this year.

Roma tomatoes! I have 2 of them this year.

Oregano. It still needs to be weeded and cut back more.
I will get to that this weekend.

Rosemary, looking a little scraggley too. I trimmed it up and watered it well so hopefully it will be full again soon.

Strawberries. The four on the left survived from
last year, yay!

Thyme. My herb of choice. I could walk around with a piece taped under my nose all day if I wasn't afraid of being locked up in the looney bin. *sigh* I love the smell and it cooks well with almost everything!

I still have potatoes to plant and may do some jalapenos, but probably not much else until summer. Then I really want to grow some yellow squash. I am determined to grow it this year since it was a complete failure last year. Not going to let it beat me. I love yellow squash! yum!

What are you growing in your garden?
Have a great week!


  1. wow, you must be having some nice weather, everything looks great! I can't grow basil outside until late june! i feel the same as you about thyme, its my favorite, i use it in almost everything too! have you ever tried lemon thyme? soo good.

    well you are way ahead of me, but today is so nice, cold but sunny, makes me want to at least think about my garden :) enjoy your weekend!

    1. awww, thanks! (LOVE your blog BTW). Yes, Florida gets nice early but it is beastly hot in the summer. Last Jan/Feb/Mar was rough though but so far this year has been great. We could have a freeze still, but I am betting we don't. Praying anyway, lol. :)
