how does your garden grow?

even though lettuce grows great there, the beds in my yard don't get much sun, so i have some containers on my sunny deck for a few other things that will hopefully complement my CSA share.

this year i made an earthtainer to grow tomatoes in. so far so good! i also planted a roma plant in another bed.
butter crunch lettuce is a staple in my garden!

red boston lettuce...

cilantro!
because i am going to make this all the time.

fresh thyme. a new herb for me this year.

basil, which smells amazing.

and i couldn't pass up some celosia. i love that stuff.

some of my favorite gardening books this year are:

here's hoping for bountiful gardens!
