Sadly, my favorite blue pot cracked--I think it took a rock from the lawnmower.
We have three tomato plants, three pepper plants, and three thyme plants, all different varieties. We've planted two of the deep red geraniums (in blue pots!), a common ornamental salvia (no, not the drug kind!), three strawberry plants in a long box, and a little wild bergamot. We also have seeded a long box with lettuces, a square planter with nasturtiums, and a round pot with tarragon. We shall see what thrives. The daughter planted two spearmint plants into a teacup-shaped pot, and it's cute!
I also tucked marigolds into the same containers with the tomatoes to try to avoid bugs. I might put more straight into the ground around them, or maybe some colorful little 6" pots.
