It's been awhile since I posted, and the garden has been busy.
The plants outgrew their milk jugs, thankfully. Stuffed into the planting box we have miniature bell peppers...
...some are turning yellow.
Yellow is the theme for the garden this year, I guess, because we chose to grow Golden Nugget cherry tomatoes and lemon basil. The lemon basil is trying to flower in the left of the photo below (and it's not yellow, it's just REAL lemony).
And this is what all the waiting is for:
More orange than golden, don't you think?
There's a larger tomato variety growing in the box, too...Stiletz is the name, I believe. They are still green, and there are a modest amount, of which I'll take snaps later (I know, I know, you're palpitating with anticipation!). A fungus of some sort attacked our larger tomato plants, and their production is much slimmer. Overall, though, it's not so bad for a first time garden.
