In the second bin I've planted squash and fennel. Where the stepping stones jog to the right I planted three more tomato plants in the ground. I had the tomato cages which I placed up against the bin and wired them to the bin to keep the wind from knocking them over and down the hill. In the first bin all I planted (basil, peppers, cucumbers, and eggplant) have doubled in size. Even though it's been rainy and cloudy plants are still growing. To the right of the stepping stones I have added some lavender and spanish tarragon plants.
In the bin in my upper garden the lettuce is almost completely gone and so is the broccolini. I plan to grow a few okra plants there because it gets lots of sun. I do like fresh baked okra. We shall see how successful I am at growing okra in a bin.
This past winter was long and depressing to me; I'm so glad it's warm and everything is growing again. Some may spend money in their budget on shoes or ... I spend a wee bit of my income on home improvement or landscaping projects because I can enjoy the results every day. If I do a few projects every year, my landscape will soon be full of wonderful garden vignettes. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
