How Our Contained Garden Grows

Our container garden is in full swing with the heat of the summer. Here's a sneak peak at what is growing, sporting, and hinting at blooming...

It's starting to get too hot for our lettuce and it will soon be time to trim it and move it to a cooler and shadier locations.

This is mystery plant #1. I am guessing it is some sort of squash or melon. I planted a bunch of seeds that we had saved and, um...forgot to mark which was which. We have several of these. Anyone know what it might be?

Mystery Plant 2

I am waiting in eager anticipation for these Star Lillies to bloom. Their buds continue to get bigger, but no flowers yet.

The tomatoes are getting plumper and it looks like the crop is going to be successful this year. The last time I grew tomatoes in a pot they died within a week. Secret? Lot's of sun, water and Dr. Earth Tomato Fertilizer.
