My little garden.

My little veggie and herb garden. I totally broke the rules and planted it early. I live about 3 blocks from Lake Michigan so it can still get pretty cold here. The little garden is very protected so I thought I would take a chance and so far so good. I planted it over a week ago and everything is growing along well. I put the herbs in pots so I can put them in my very sunny pantry in the winter and have fresh herbs all year! It is so nice to have the herbs to cook with. I planted chives, oregano, thyme, sage, lavender, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a few little daisy like flowers for a little color. The steps to our apartment are right there so I am hoping the cucumbers will vine on the railing! It's my first attempt at veggies and I can't wait to enjoy the fruits (or veggies) of my labor.
