Since we live in a taller building, and the window boxes have some real height, I'm hoping the oregano climbs down a bit this year. Last year we had a few shoots that edged over, but I'd like a little more.
The dwarf peach tree wasn't quite as easy. I wanted to repot the plant to give him more room to root, so I bought the largest pot I could find at Home Goods. Then I transfered the tree and gave him a good watering. These days, the tree looks a bit like this:
If you look closely, you can even see a little budding from last year's mint, which covered the top of the soil. That was one of my favorite plants, and I used it over and over in the kitchen, so I'm thrilled to see it survived the winter.
I added some new seedlings, too--lettuce, strawberries and dill.
This is my first year with strawberries, so we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping for some sweet berries throughout the season.
I've also got some pea seeds I need to sow before the weather gets too warm. Hopefully I'll get to that today or tomorrow. Until then, I'll be enjoying the garden.
