We ended up with a few more herbs than could fit in the herb spirals that my husband and I built this weekend, so I grabbed some pots from and planted the leftover rosemary, tarragon, and onion chives on the back deck.
There’s one more addition to this growing container army that I mentioned on the Eat Drink Better Facebook page but not here: I ordered a Meyer lemon tree online on Friday! It should arrive any day now, and I’ve got a pot and a little wheeled base, so that I can move it inside if the temperatures get too chilly for my new citrus tree.
This container garden is suddenly a lot more responsibility, but I think I can handle it. Luckily, my husband is out in the yard practically every weekend, so the plants out there have a much better chance of living. He’s a much better gardener than I am!
Have you guys grown lots of herbs or a lemon tree before? If you’ve got tips on maintaining the plants, I’d love to hear advice!
