I went to a local nursery yesterday and picked up a 42 lb bag of soil, a cart-full of herbs and a few tomato plants. After a lot of discussion, Paul and I agreed to start small with our little patio garden and see how things go. We have had herbs before, but always planted in small pots on a windowsill with poor drainage. Hopefully direct sunlight, more space and drainage will help our basil, mint, rosemary, cilantro & thyme grow.
And the tomatoes are just a whim. I have never planted anything besides herbs so we'll see how they do!
ps. those tan flats are c/o Blowfish Shoes and isn't "Green Thumb" the cutest name for a nursery?
