At the farmer's market a few weekends back, we picked up some starts: strawberries, a salad mix and mustard greens for the lizards. I've also got some greens and squash started, as well as some herbs for kitchen pots.
Stinky decided to lend a hand, mostly wanting to stick the spade into each pot, most of all when we'd finished planting in it.
The garden is now in place along the side of our porch- a kitchen container with a tomato plant and lots of lettuces, lizard (mustard) greens, and lots, and lots of strawberries. The porch is too narrow for anything like a bench or chairs, but the side gets sun all day long, and it should pick up some rain here, too.
