Gardening Season!

Stella sent me a tomatillo, four heirloom tomatoes, three cucumber plants, and two peppers. Unfortunately I let them get overheated and dry in the three-season porch. One of the cucumber plants wilted, and two of the tomatoes started looking bad. (The peppers were perfectly happy!)

So, I finally started planting today. I added another cucumber plant (because I got stupid and thought Stella had given me beans) and a cherry tomato. I'm also planting the usual collection of herbs: dill, basil, rosemary, lavender, one or two others I can't recall at the moment. I had no need to buy cilantro this year as it reseeded itself quite nicely. For flowers I just have snapdragons and marigolds, as well as some phlox to fill in where the bunnies have eaten.

I'm a little worried about any plant that has a suggested spacing in feet. We'll just have to cope with the cucumber vine taking over, I guess.

The plan is to buy a bush bean to fill in the front planter, and put marigolds all around to distract the bunnies. Then I will work down in the walkway with herbs, peppers, and the snapdragons.
