Remember this post? It's the one about the time Hubs and I went to Home Depot and spent an exorbitant amount of money on flowers while Hubs threatened my entire flower-deserving-future on my ability to keep said flowers alive?
Well, I would like to take this post to introduce you to our "deckgarden."
I would also like to give myself a tiny pat on the back. Why? I happened only to kill a single hanging basket of miniature impatients and to this day, cannot figure out how, since I swear up and down I watered them every other day.
bog boy tomatoes, hot peppers,
dill, oregano and rosemary and hot pink geraniums
strawberries, a creepy-crawly purple plant,
bsail and curly parsley
Mmmm.. Strawberry smoothies..
Peppermint and Spearmint for a summer's worth of Mojitos
Hubs says the secret is in the mixing of potting soil and topsoil. I think it has a little to do with the 2 teaspoons of miracle grow plant food I mix with each gallon of water I lug out onto the deck every Sunday morning. In a leaky pitcher, I might add. Hubs, you think we can spring for a watering can now? You know, one of those cute ones I pointed out a HomeGoods last weekend? I'm just saying...
The first round of fresh tomato, basil and mozz is on me this summer..
