I decided to plant a deck garden ONLY this year and I have a sweet little section in the sunniest spots on the deck filled with various pots of a variety of veggies and herbs.
This photo is right after the little green leaves started pushing through the soil.
I became inspired to paint flat river rocks with the names of my plants. Painting words and pictures was a bit harder than I first anticipated but I got better with each one.
Lemon Mint and Licorice Mint
Sempervivum and Dianthus
Rosemary and Parsley
Stevia (I am excited to experiement with this plant!)
Mom and I were planting seeds and we came across some random unknown ones that we planted in this rectangular planter just to see what actually grew. I forgot that we had already planted seeds in this pot and I filled the “empty” pot with more Dianthus. Look what grew alongside the Dianthus! Snap peas!
Whether or not I grow much to actually use in cooking, preserving, etc, it makes me happy just to see little things growing! Such simple beauty.
