Thursday in the Garden with Simba
Mom intended to get a picture of me inspecting my new Impatiens plants, but I got waylaid at the catnip plant, which I have not seen since they went away. I decided it needed some serious pruning, because it has grown quite a bit. To stop me over-pruning it, Mom ended up snipping off a piece and giving it to me to love on.
My parsley and chives are doing well in the background - I also did a bit of pruning on the chives. For some reason, the basil almost died when they were away. Maybe it got too cold, as we had some surprisingly cold weather for a few days. So they have some new basil plants and oregano now. Dad even bought and transplanted four cherry tomato plants. Based on his previous lack of success growing tomatoes here, don't hold your breath to see any fruit until late August, if ever. They are in the sunniest part of the deck, but we still have too much shade.
Next week I will try to update you on those, as well as the impatiens, which are newly planted in four planter boxes. That's my deck-garden folks!
