first garden

This "retirement" is been very busy. Busier than I ever was while I was "working." Only now I am working longer hours for NO pay! The work is different of course. Totally different. Better, I think!

We finally got around to coordinating herbs with pots and soil, and et voila! We have the beginnings of a garden. I figured that an herb garden might serve best if it is closest to the kitchen, so we put several herbs in pots up on the 3rd floor balcony, where they get lots of afternoon sun.


Lavender, sweet basil, cinnamon basil, thyme, oregano, spearmint, and finally cilantro. Others will follow.

And we went ahead and put three tomato seedlings into pots and stuck them in the backyard where they will get beaucoup sun. 

Before we can plant anything in our lot next door, we have to get it cleared a bit. To come.
