Layanee's post yesterday inspired me. Since I'm mostly gardening in containers it was a lot easier for me to photograph my plants from underneath. By the time I get home from work the sun has long left the yard behind, so I didn't experiment too much.
A basil jungle:
Purple basil and golden sage:
More celosia (which I don't think I will ever grow again):
I just stuck the camera in the center of the plants near the bottom and shot. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out and I think I'll do more of it when I have better light.
Today's harvest included beans at last. But how do you know when they're ready? Notice the size difference amongst the 4 that I did pick:
Like I said yesterday, we're dying to turn our extra tomatoes into salsa that we can freeze, so I picked the habanero at the first sign of changing color and I hope that a day on the windowsill will do the trick. Not that we need it to be ripe. I think they'll still be really hot green.
The 3 not so attractive tomatoes above are from this plant:
So I can finally pull it and dump the awful soil which created ugly tomato plant, rinse the container with a bleach solution, and plant something else in there. Any suggestions? We found that we didn't eat the lettuce that we grew in the spring and I've got lots of beans and peas going already.
