You never really know how what you plant will turn out. Will it thrive or will it die?
I have been fairly lucky with my attempts at a small container garden this year.
I wasn't really sure how the impatiens would do. I knew the area got morning sun, but it turned out to be a bit hotter than I would have liked.
Even so, the impatiens in the larger pots have done fairly well. The ones in the smaller pots however, haven't done as well. I have tossed a couple of them and may lose a couple more.
The impatiens that I mixed in with the herbs are growing nicely, and the herbs seem to love where they are placed.
I moved the petunias over onto the garden stand. They love the hot sun they are getting.
I have also had mixed results with the tomato plants and the one green pepper plant. The green pepper gave up the ghost. It has been tossed also. It produced two small peppers, but it was just in too small of a pot.
The tomato plants on the other hand are producing in abundance.
This next winter I am going to be on the lookout for some larger inexpensive pots. I would like to try growing some squash next year and maybe try another green pepper.
I'm really enjoying having a little garden again, although I wish it was a little closer to my apartment. I would sit out there more if it was.
I'm not giving up on having my own outdoor space again some day, and in the meantime I'm going to enjoy the fruits of my summer labor.
