i wish you could smell these pictures

Green growing things on my deck. I took the first 4 pictures when I first planted my tomatoes & herbs…back in early May. I didn't really know what I was doing, but picked up a bunch of seedlings and some gravel & some potting soil and went to town. Two kinds of basil, some rosemary, some chives, and two different tomato plants. For the smell of the herbs alone, it is all worth it.

The sweet basil makes great pestos. The rosemary is amazing with roasted potatoes. The lemon basil has just about the best aroma ever. I put some into my iced tea sometimes, just for the smell.





A couple of months later, I've got grape tomatoes ripening, and the tomato plants have sprouted up above the deck railing. I'm hoping I actually get to eat some of these!!




and some fun sun flare, just for kicks.

I'm sniffing the computer screen - I don't know if it's my great YANKEE internet connection or if it's your pics, but I can ALMOST smell the rosemary!!

Yummy! We are battling the rabbits and birds for the fruit of our labors... :-) we'll see how much we get to harvest!

It's probably not the Yankee internet, but the stupid HICK internet we have down here. It won't move fast enough...
