We’re in the process of re-working our large potager, so I tucked some seeds into large pots in early spring. They’re so easy to care for and I’m getting quite a bit of edibles from a small area, and no weeding!
Zinnias mixed with Shallots. They’re just about to bloom.
Haricot Vert green beans, Spaghetti squash, kale, cucumbers, Swiss chard, and many different herbs are waiting just outside the front door.
The herbs are happy in the warm weather. Parsley, Marjoram, Sage and Catnip.
The purple Clematis really put on a show this year.
This area is just under one of my bedroom windows. It’s becoming a favorite little garden area for me. Rob edged it in stone and it looks great. Although I need to get my weed eater out and do some trimming!
You can barely see my patch of Lavender blooming. I can never have enough Lavender and I plan on planting a lot more over time. Have you ever made Lavender lemonade? Amazing stuff!
All of my blooming plants are in purple, blue or white in the front of my house. Even most of the herbs have cooperated with the color scheme when they bloom! Except for the pineapple sage. I just cut the red blooms and bring them inside.
So there you have it. My tiny front garden. Even if you only have a balcony, abundant herbs, flowers, and veggies can be yours. Hope you get your hands in some dirt soon. It’s good for the soul!
