Now come on, I know you better, you have little grow lights inside with mini pots ready to fly into them. Has Ct. been wet this year? We here in De. have had a wet winter, not much snow, but rain this spring. Looking forward to seeing your plants this year. Missed it last year.

I would have every pot full of something, if I wasn't in Michigan and there wasn't going to be snow this weekend.

My plans this year is to fill my pots with something. Strawberries, herbs, veggies, what ever I can fit in them. Last year I planted Lemon Balm and Borage, which helped my tomato plants. I'm going to add Horseradish, Marigolds, Lavender (again), and Zinnias. I will continue to grow Basil, Thyme, Sage, Tarragon, Cilantro, Parsley, tomatoes, and a lot of hot peppers.

I can't bring myself to grow anything decorative in a pot that produces no other use other than to add some kind of bedazzlement.

Does the Artemisia handle sun well? I always look at them but then they look so fragile I am afraid they will fry in the sun. Love that combo though.

Supposedly, yes. They were on clearance at Lowes for $3. so I figured Id save them. They get afternoon sun, and seem happy, so far.

I have one container, a raised bed of sorts, 3.5 ft by 2 feet. I have Two tomato plants, Two Cucumber plants, an eggplant, and a Cayenne Pepper.

Its something of an experiment for me this year. Filled exclusively with dirt/mulch/compost dug out of my chicken run.

My front yard containers have or will have, in a few weeks lots of annuals. they line our walkway from the driveway to the front porch. In the back we grow veggies. So far I have only planted basil (2 kinds) rosemary a few tomatoes and cukes. Next week i will do more tomatoes, probably some bush beans and my okra. Of course I must remember to do peppers as well.

I only have flowers in my containers. I do however grow a few veggies. Last year I tried the lazy way and it was fabulous, so much so I am doing it again this year. I bought fabric pots on Amazon and put in tomatoes, cukes, peppers, squash and a cantaloupe in each. The did fabulously.

Finished the last of my containers (probably.) I bought a Mr. Stripey Tomato plant at the store and look forward to seeing how it does in a 5 Gallon bucket. The rest I have some Bush Cukes in that are supposed to be decent in pots.

On my way to Lowe's today to buy the rest of the seeds and plants for the season. I am just going to hope there isn't too much rain on Monday for me to finish planting. I still have a lot of containers and raised areas that are empty. In fact if I am not to tired and the rain isn't here yet this afternoon, I may get some plants in today.

Aloes and mint. Mint to keep it contained and aloes to bring inside during the winter so they won't freeze to death.
