Since the weather was so nice these last few days, I had to be out in the garden. This is the time of year that some of our trees produce their fruit - too many oranges to count and three avocados. Needless to say, I'm taking good care of those three avocados!
A routine trip to Home Depot for painting stuff and we ended up coming home with soil, seedlings and lots of ambition. My husband pulled out some old 2x6's and made a second raised bed for his tomatoes. I turned over the soil in last year's bed (too much shade for the tomatoes to do well) and this will hopefully become a kitchen herb garden.
I amended the soil in a few of our pots, and added some things which will hopefully do well: clippings from the oregano plant in the garden, little tiny red onions that were in a bundle at H.D., arugula seedlings, some kind of onion that comes back year after year with a gorgeous white burst of flowering something, and some rosemary.
|Little red onions and transplanted bigger onions - maybe chives?|

|Tomatoes - our favorite!|
I know this weather won't last, but I hope these little plants will. There's nothing like walking out the kitchen door and picking some fresh spices to use in a meal. Time will tell.
