Of course, after I got everything in pots and positioned where I want them, Addie came running in and said “There’s a bunny in the yard. Can I catch it?” I told her . . sure . . knowing she couldn’t but . . a bunny in the yard isn’t so good for my plants but he was here first so we’ll figure out how to live together I hope. I did put the basil up where he can’t reach it.
Above is a pot of oregano and a pot of cilantro (because I bought it before I remembered I had thrown out seeds and you can’t have too much cilantro anyway). I kinda stuck those pots in the ground. In Texas, both are perennials but I doubt they are here.
There’s the basil I had positioned in front of a straw bale but I moved it to a higher spot hoping the bunny won’t get it and . . I’m sure there’s not just one bunny.
Two bell peppers and a jalapeno pepper. I hope we get some raised beds made and I can put these in there but if not, these pots are probably ok for peppers. The front of the house gets afternoon sun so I’m trying to put things where they will get a little shade.
It was so bright, I couldn’t even see what I was getting in the picture but it’s shasta daisies on the top right and some kind of petunias on the top left. Rosemary on the bottom left and some wimpy lavender plants on the bottom right and . . Addie at the door.
In the first picture of the steps, I didn’t get the hoverboard and in this picture, I didn’t get all the plants but that’s her hoverboard. Thank goodness she hasn’t tried to go up the steps (or down the steps) with it.
I’m not sure I took pictures of everything but I got everything potted except mint. I have a spot over by a faucet where I’m thinking I may plant the mint in the ground. It’s a spot where it’s a bit shady and I won’t be growing anything else but . . mint . . it may take over so I’m still thinking about that.
It was nice to be out playing in the dirt but it was also nice not to be planting a huge garden to have to try to keep alive, watered and weeded.
