When it's too cold to plant outside, the antsy gardener will not be deterred. She must DO something, and it must involve digging. She gets it in her mind to make a portable herb garden, so off she goes to the local package store. However, it's a cold April day, and the inventory is skimpy.
Oregano was found at the grocery (more later). The package store had three types of basil--Antsy opted for classic sweet and a few bunches of spicy.
Have you ever used spicy basil? I hadn't (couldn't find it). It smells peppery and fiesty.
The pot-bound oregano was found on the bargain table at the grocery. Mrs. Antsy knew that roots are lazy little things, and if you don't rough 'em up, they'll keep growing in circles, like, forever. So she gave them a workout.
Drainage pebbles went into the bottom of a wide clay pot.
White alyssum has some neat benefits.
Now Antsy has a nice, little portable pizza garden.
I'm antsy to share more projects with you!
