Then I took a trip down to the garden. It is quickly being over run by poison ivy, poison oak and weeds. I just don't have time to take care of it but there are still things growing despite my neglect. The herbs are doing great. I actually think they are doing better than when I take care of it and weed and water. This is the oregano that I planted a few years ago. It has just taken over half the bed.
And here is the sage and thyme which has never grown better. I am going to go back down in a few minutes and harvest some of these as I am out of both.
Then there was this pepper. This is one of the hot banana peppers. There is another one down there too but it needs to grow a bit more.
We then decided to dump the potato pots out and see what we had gotten. This is what they looked like before. They were eaten up and fallen over.
The second pot did slightly better but it was also slightly larger being a round tub with the rope handles. There were lots of nice roots in this pot so I know it had gotten enough waterings.
Here they are all cleaned up. I think I would definitely do them in pots again although maybe they don't need as large a pot as I thought.
