After HRH went to bed last night, I put together my new "gazpacho garden," a.k.a. whiskey tub with two tomatoes and two chiles, and planted my replacement lavenders and impulse buy - a pineapple sage. This morning, I was able to actually see them (it was almost 10PM when I came in last night), so that was a bonus.
|I got this idea from Sunset; the original suggestion was|
a galvanized steel tub, but I love whiskey tubs.
I also only put in chiles and tomatoes; the magazine included
basil (ew) and chives (already somewhere else).
|Provençal lavender - oo-la-la!|
|Pineapple sage - too bad it doesn't grow real pineapples!|
|Two-year-olds don't really help in the garden,|
regardless of what they will try to tell you...
|Kitty with the mint - the dog spooked him right when I snapped this.|
I think it's funny anyway.
|Finally able to snack on the mint, uninterrupted|
|To be fair, I needed to put in a picture of Zooey.|
This was like the one second this morning she wasn't barking.
Please don't pay attention to my non-stuccoed walls.
