Urban Gardening Week 3 : Garden Expansion

I added a few plants to the little backyard garden! Things are really coming along nicely!

The full garden:

New additions:

  • Purple basil
  • Pineapple mint/sage
  • Catnip (this sent Mittsy into a fit of crazy aka she tried to maul the plant immediately. Totally a hit.)
  • Alpine strawberries
  • Cilantro (looking very sad, I hope it will resurrect itself.)
  • Arugula
  • Mixed greens

Urban Gardening Week 2

So far so good. Mostly. I went out of town for a few days, and what blew through Massachusetts while I was gone? A tornado. Really, folks. And that tornado carried with it a storm that did some damage to my wee urban garden. But alas, all seems fine. Even if the board behind my plants fell over, causing the jumbo mint plant to fall on my small oregano plant, where it sat atop it -- crushing it -- for four days before I could come back into town to rescue it.

OREGANO STATUS: Surviving? Hanging on?


CHIVES STATUS: kitty loves them. She now has stinky breath.

MINT STATUS: growing great. I tried to feed some mint to kitty so she would smell better. She wasn't having it. Aren't cats supposed to like mint because it's a relative of cat nip?

TOMATOES STATUS: Looking plentiful.

Urban garden week 2 overall status: Great.
