So I have to grow stuff in pots or in the front garden.
Being a fresh herb addict, there are a few 'must-haves' which I've already planted, and now that I know I won't be moving overseas anytime soon, I can start planting the rest.
It's amazing how much will grow in pots in a nice sunny position.
Here's Basil. He's delicious with some warm pasta, a little olive oil and a few grape tomatoes.
And here are the Scarborough Fair Quads
chillies (yes, not a herb, but aren't they pretty?)
Lastly, mint -- for the mojitos, you know. MMMMM. Mojitos....
(poor mint has had a beating from the caterpillars but he'll bounce back in no time.)
I'd like to get some tomatoes growing soon. I have 4 or 5 different varieties to plant. I would like to track down more varieties of basil, and try to get coriander to grow (never have had any luck with it).
If we had the space, I'd plant corn and beans and snowpeas and capsicums and lettuce too. Home-grown tastes so much better than supermarket!
