What's Growing

Only things which are low maintenance around this house. The extent of my vegetable gardening is this container garden my mother bought from Sam's Club. It cost under $10 for the cherry tomato plant surrounded by six herbs. I repotted it in a yard sale find. It seems to love all the hose water my son lavishes on it every day. Below is a shot of my shady bed, which I have filled in with several ferns dug from my mother's woods. These are called Christmas ferns because they stay green even during the holidays (though a dark, brackish green before the new growth comes in spring). Hey, they're free!

Very pretty! And Grandma brought a vegetable to your house, that must be a pleasant surprise.
