But I HAVE done some serious planting - a project that was not on the spring break agenda, but I couldn't resist with this undeniable springtime weather. I have very little sunny space on my second floor entryway and balcony, but I love to garden. Most vegetables would never survive with the limited sunlight and space, so I stuck with herbs and decorative plants. Here is what I planted:
|Fennel, rosemary, and mint in the herb pot on the left. |
Basil and strawberries in the rectangular planter.
Decorative mixed plants in the large planter on the right.
|cilantro, chives, oregano and parsley|
|a beautiful calla lily by the front door|
In the planter on the right, you can see some of my plant markers left over from last year. I still need to make markers for most of the herbs. They were easy and inexpensive to make. Just spray large tongue depressors/craft sticks with chalkboard paint and glue colorful buttons at the end. I used a white paint pen to write the names of the herbs instead of chalk so that it wouldn't wash off when watered.
Hopefully tomorrow I will make a little more progress on my business goals, but for today it was wonderful to be out in the sunshine with my hands in the dirt!
