Notice the plant closest to you is not a flower (yet). It is what is called a citronella geranium. Its a natural mosquito repellent. It smells totally like citronella (its really strong).
After I finished planting those, it still hadn't rained yet, so I planted the tomatoes:
I know they don't look like much yet but soon I should have multiple tomatoes to make one of my favorite summer salads - tomatoes mozzarella and basil. So of course I planted some fest basil (we got 3 plants because we love this stuff so much). Come August we will be begging people to take this stuff because it grows like a weed:
Here is one side of the herb garden:
Finally, I planted the rest of the flowers, watered everything and put some of the compost juice (as J refers to it - hot garbage) from the can of worms (I'll post about that some other time) and in I came.
Its still not raining and we don't get the Yankees v. Mets game here in OH so, I am going to go on abc.com and watch some episodes of Ugly Betty that for some reason are just not Tivoing. We also need to go spend some time upstairs watching Lost, but its paper time for J. He loves that time and doesn't like to be disturbed.
