I highly recommend putting herbs on your deck. It’s so handy to run out and snip some off for dinner.
I don’t know what happened to the mustard leaves. Clearly, they were supposed to be picked a while ago. But, we didn’t pick it and now it’s flowering. They never seemed to be big enough…. oh well. We can still eat the lettuce and chives.
And, this is what I like to call my box of mint. Not really… but it is a flower box full of varieties of mint. For mojitos… or just your general enjoyment. This pineapple mint intrigued me. It smells really great. And, I think a pineapple mint mojito sounds delightful. I’ll let you know when I try it.
And, here’s the lettuce. Which is so yummy. I think I planted it too closely, but it’s still doing well and tastes great. You can see where I snipped some.
And, here are the little garden tags I made for the window boxes. I bought a cheap metal stamping kit at Menards and stamped on these copper tags. My friend, Jen, gave me the tip to always stamp on concrete. This is the biggest trick. Otherwise, it’s pretty simple.
