Porch Garden

The Wife takes time to plant her organic "porch garden".

You can't see her "green thumb", but it's there.

120 pounds of soil later. The seedlings to our jalapeņo peppers,

and, on the more subtle side, our spices, rosemary and lemon thyme.

Even I lent a hand by planting a few of her Box Car Willy seeds.

The future home to The Wife's tomatoes.

Oh my, 70 days later and we have tomato plants instead of sprouts.

There are 3 plants in each pot. This is the same angle as the picture of the empty pots.

Our jalapeņo pepper plants. See the little white flower in the center? There are about 5 of those.

Our spices, rosemary & lemon thyme have been used in our cooking the past couple months.

Here's the whole porch Garden growing wild!

She does such a wonderful job of caring for them.

We added some catnip to the garden for Dustie the Cat.

The jalapeņos are doing great!

As are these 2 large tomatoes.

October arrives with a harvest. Jalapeņos for spicing up food & making homemade poppers. Yum!

The two large green tomatoes from above in all their final glory.

Then there are these smaller ones that The Wife puts on her homemade pizza.

Lastly, a small basket with some of the colorful fruit.
