Look - pots of salad and herbs for summer.

Now the terracotta pot actually has geraniums in it, so it is there more for effect. I was very pleased that all the old pots matched as this appealed to my inner compulsive tendencies. Farmgirl and I planted mixed lettuce, grape tomatoes, coriander, basil, mint, thyme and oregano. I think they should do OK.
Farmgirl decided to plant her own garden. This involved picking the few remaining flowers in the garden and popping them in a pot. The end result was at the rustic and bucolic end of the gardening spectrum. But that's OK. It's my second favourite gardening theme (after Nanna-Style, obviously).
Her garden looked like this.

My gut feeling is it is probably going to fall into the "live fast, die young" category of pot plants. Oh well.
She looked pretty cute doing it.

After the potted garden adventures Farmgirl was tired and headed inside to fall asleep on the couch whilst watching The Octonauts.
I decided to take on the rest of the weeds. Now, I have a confession to make. I know it is not very organic of me but when it comes to weeds my strategy is basically "I have Round Up and I am not afraid to use it." I got busy glysophating and am hopeful that the garden should at least be less of a snake haven by the end of the week. (Will I get unfollowed for admitting I use weedkiller?? I will let you know.)
So there you go - that's my Thursday. What about you? Hope you had a good one.
