Next week, we will plant at least two container gardens for our porch area. I went to the farmers market this morning with a specific plan in mind - what could we grow that 1) will lead naturally to fun cooking projects, 2) that kids would like to eat and 3) could be ready to harvest in just a few weeks?
My solution - a pizza garden (oregano, basil, arugula, thyme) and a tea garden (chamomile, spearmint, mint, hyssop, lavender). In late May/early June we will make mini-pizzas one day, and have a tea party another day. Lovely!
Here is a picture of one of my cats checking out the selection. Frisky approved!
