Urban Garden

Baby Maters

This is the first real fruit from our little window box garden, although we’ve already taken a few leaves from the lettuce and basil plants for various meals. We’re pretty proud—we call the plants our babies.

Urban GardenCherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce, thyme, parsley, oregano and basil.

Nathan built the window box and i chose the paint color. We planted the babies together and water them on days that nature doesn’t do so for us. We don’t have a proper watering can, so we use our cups instead.

Basil Blossoms 2

I noticed today that our basil plant is blossoming. So pretty.

  1. I’m sorry, I couldn’t help but lol when you said you chose the white paint color that matches the white walls out on your patio… awesome! ;)
    Very pretty pictures, though. I’m impressed by your green thumb(s).

  2. You can’t tell from the photos, but it’s actually a particular shade of light greenish gray that matches the terrace PERFECTLY, thankyouverymuch. :P

  3. Howdy. Just a quick clue. When your basil “blossoms”, it is actually going to seed. You need to cut that crap off straight away or no more basil leaves. You may have figured that out by now. Good Luck.

  4. If you want your basil to keep producing nice big tender leaves that you can eat, you need to pinch those flowers and buds off the tops of the plants ;)
