Gardening update

Three weeks ago I blogged about the container garden I had just started.  I just wanted to chime in with an update. 

We added some plant hangers under the upper deck to hang some more shade tolerant plants.  My Christmas cactus seems to like it.

The tiny cucumber, tomato and pepper plants from my last blog post have taken off.  I've never done very well growing peppers.  None of the three I planted seem to be nearly as exuberant as the other plants.

I under planted these two tomatoes with a mesclun lettuce mix and we'll enjoy a nice, very fresh salad with dinner tonight.

I planted many of the containers with herb seeds.  They have sprouted and are just now really getting going.

I also put in a simple compost bin
My son's one request was strawberries
