I am the proud new owner of a tiny garden. I figured with all the fresh herbs and tomatoes that I am using in my recipes that I would lighten the pocketbook with a few herbs and veggies.
I started with the tomatoes. I chose Early Girl and Husky Cherry Red varieties. I chose a pot that would allow me to plant the big ones in the bottom, upside-down and the cherries on the top. My poor Early Girl got all beat up trying to get it through
that stupid hole. I’m hoping she will recover.
The herb garden consists of sage, parsley, basil, rosemary, and spearmint. I used both the basil and the parsley in tonight’s menu, and they were delicious.
Finally, I bought some strawberries, because I love them. It was an impulse buy. I also got an upside-down pot for these. This pot has three holes for three different plants. My husband planted these and meticulously put each little leaf through the holes.
I’m hoping that I can keep them alive. I’ve never had much luck with plants. I shouldn’t forget them when they are being picked at almost every day. I’m looking forward to having bruschetta and fresh strawberries whenever these plants mature.
