Here’s a great surprise. I bought a friend a tomato plant for his birthday. (We have a common love of tomatoes and he and his family just moved to a new house with plenty of room for growing tomatoes.) My friend decided to build himself a planter box and then built one for ME too!
I have this planter box on my deck, right up against the wall so it would get lots of afternoon sunshine.
My basil loves the heat and the controlled amount of water. I started the tomatoes inside, with my Miracle Grow Aero Garden and then moved them outside to my new planter.
I’m not sure what it is with my big garden this year, but the tomatoes and basil aren’t looking too great. They look kind of scraggly, so I’m happy to have my new planter. I now have tomatoes and basil to cook with!
Thanks for my planter, Kenny!
