I bought some tomatoes and peppers a few weeks ago & finally started planting them. Decided my regular vegetable garden isn't getting much sun--the trees are growing---so I'm putting all of them in pots near the house. I will be underplanting with some herbs, too. Hope to have a great harvest. One of the peppers I bought is an Ancho--great for all the MX cooking we do!

A Little Splash of Color amongst the Green...
We have sadly neglected our yard the past few years and are making a valiant effort to spruce it up this spring. As you can see the woods surround the house & this ugly concrete wall is holding up the hill. We have tried to grow ivy up it--only lasted a few years. Well, I got the bright idea to hang some planters on the wall & let the vines cover a little of it. So off I went to Ocean State Job Lot to get the wall planters.... Alan thought they were a great idea until he had to drill holes in the cement to hang them! I have filled them with geraniums and vinca vines--will try that this year & see how they work out......it doesn't get too much sun, so we may try other plants next year.
