Gone to Pot

Yesterday was a long but good day on the deck. I have a number of plants in various planters. We spent all afternoon re-potting them. We still have some daylilies that need to be transplanted but all the rest got taken care of. I also went out and bought some herbs so they got potted too. I want to put more in but for now, these are the staples I use most frequently. They went in planters on my deck just outside the kitchen.

Provence Lavender
Thai Basil
Sweet Basil
Greek Oregano
Pineapple Sage
German Thyme

Next is the vegetable garden. I am debating where to put the new bed. We were looking at outside the fenced part of our yard but then we run the risk of rabbits, deer and other garden foraging crittters getting in. But if we stick it in the fenced in area we run the risk of the chickens and ducks foraging in it. One way or another we are going to need to do some creative planning. There will be more on the veggie garden later.

For now, here are some photos of the deck.

The deck looks great. I'll bet you spend wonderful summer days out there!

Keep the veggie garden in the fence. Chickens do less damage than deer! Good luck!
