We didn't plant very many veggies this year because we thought we'd be moved and utilizing our new raised beds by now. Therefore we only have one cherry tomato plant and one big cucumber plant in a wooden barrel. So far we've eaten a measly two cucumbers and we've seen a couple tiny green tomatoes growing. To make up for the lack of produce, what I did do was plant myself some flowers.
This lavender plant started out as a baby two summers ago in a teeny tiny 4 inch pot. It didn't do much the first summer and last summer we took it out of our planter box and stuck it in the ground. It got bigger. But this summer, holy cow, the thing is monstrous. It resides next to Phil505's mint which is equally monstrous. It's so pretty and smells delightful. It also attracts lots and lots of bees.
