[our garden: the beginnings]
then there's the herb containers: lemonbalm, orange mint, apple mint, & spearmint in container 1; dill, chives, summer savory, greek oregano, & italian oregano in container 2. i still need to get another container for basil & one for cilantro or plant them in the garden space. and i have a rosemary plant to pot, too.
[herb containers 1 & 2]
as for making the garden more presentable & more manageable: we're going to get a load of compost to spread over the top of the garden. then, i want to get square concrete pavers to create the paths by which i get to the plants to water, weed, & harvest. we'll stake the tomatoes & cucumbers when they get a little taller. i'd also like to put up a wooden fence at the end by the extended flower bed to delineate the space. but we'll see how much we actually get done this summer!
next project: creating our own compost bin so we don't have to buy it again!
