Will only plant herbs and cherry tomatoes in containers on the deck. Will be busy planting shrubs, azaleas, and forsythias in the yard and tulips in the front garden.

Never planted the cherry tomatoes or forsythia - every thing else (except the dill plant) are doing well!

Still a few days away from Spring 2018. But I will be planting some green onions and garden beans on the deck area. I also plan to put it a few perennials in pots on the back portion of the yard. Not much else planned yet, except to get the lawn back in shape again... lol

I have not tried herbs as much. I suppose it is because I'm not sure what to do with them after they grow... lol.

I use a lot of herbs and spices in my cooking - especially basil and chives. I am diabetic so I use seasonings to "ramp" up the flavor without adding carbs! Nothing beats freshly grown herbs!

In that case I may have to try a few. I do have a couple window box style planters that I could use for those items. Thanks for the tip!

Yes, I use those types of planters myself - put in a very sunny area and water daily!

Do you grow a large garden or just enough to dine on when it is ready to pluck?

Very cool. Mine is small, but I enjoy watching it come up and of course the aromas from the flowers and the flavors from the garden.
