It was time.
Last weekend our whole family made a trip to Lowes to buy what we needed to get our garden growing. Now my "garden" consists of large containers on our patio, although my husband plants a couple of tomato plants in the ground.
I've grown basil for several years now. I'm already looking forward to making Pasta with Chicken and Basil.
Last year I tried a pepper plant and cherry tomatoes, but without much success. Hope, as they say, springs eternal in the human breast, so I'm planting them again this year!
I'm also attempting red onions for the first time.
So that takes care of my April project. And, should the harvest not be sufficient, there's always the farmers' market - where we got these gorgeous strawberries last weekend!
Here's a hint as to what we did with some of them!
Yes, strawberry shortcake was on the menu!
Are you doing any gardening this year? If you have any tips for container gardening, please share!
