Container Gardening (2)

It's been raining all day today so I've been holding off posting this so I could show everyone how the container garden has progressed since last week. UPDATE: It's still raining here, so I'm just going to post this with some pictures I took through my sliding glass door.

The tomato, green pepper and jalapeno pepper plants seem to be growing a bit. The strawberry plant has lots of flowers on it. There isn't much else to pollinate in the backyard, so I hope the bees are able to find it!

Basil and Rosemary aren't really doing much. Last week, I picked a lot of basil to make a Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Pizza (post coming soon), so it's actually lost leaves. They seem to be growing back pretty quickly, though.

I found a spot for the blueberry bush! It's nowhere near the rest of the garden. In fact, it's all by itself to left of the house, in the front yard. That seems to be the only spot that gets constant sun, so it will have to do. There is more space on the side of the house, so if that plant seems to flourish, maybe I'll plant a few more.

Anyone else gardening? How is your garden doing?
