I wanted to share my pallet garden progress and in the process, stumbled upon the blue-tailed skink who has been living under our porch. This time, I caught him camera-in-hand and managed to snap this shot of him! He’s been keeping my plants company while they await their new home – a pallet garden that my husband and I will be planting soon!
At Rural King this weekend, I purchased the following herbs and veggie plants:
- lemon balm
- flat italian parsley
- cinnamon basil
- sweet basil
- Early Girl tomato plant
- Lemon Boy tomato plant
- Cherokee Purple tomato plant
- Super Sweet tomato plant
- Carrot seeds
- Cucumber seeds
- Lettuce seeds
A little overboard? Maybe. But hopefully, they all survive until I can get them pallet-planted and firmly rooted and my backyard will be full of fresh herbs and veggies this year!
For the last 2 weeks, we’ve been experienced unseasonably warm weather here in Southern Illinois. Our end of March averages were all in the 60′s and 70′s and the the few days have been solidly in the 80′s! Sounds like prime planting weather to me. Soon Brad will be bringing home a new pallet and some more potting soil and we’ll be crossing our fingers that a late frost won’t zap all my little plants.
Here are some shots of my herbs pre-pallet!
And of course, my tomato plants, too!
Check back soon for the final pallet garden photo, as well as an array of new photos showing how our front yard landscaping (ALMOST FINISHED!) turned out! :)
