cc2I know, I know, you have all been wondering how I was making out so far this season with my container garden. My apologies, I have been busy over the past few weeks and have not had a chance to snap pictures and write an update until now.

That all said… my container garden is doing quite well. My tomato plants in particular have experienced great growth and from the number of bright yellow blooms I have seen, I think I am going to have a nice crop of tomatoes in a few weeks.

Meanwhile, my basil plants are doing very well also. Now only if I could figure out how to make that fresh mozzarella cheese and I would have everything I need for my favorite summer meal.

The only think I have to worry about now is how my plant will fare over the coming days while I am away in Chicago. I am hoping there will be a few rain showers here and there to keep the soil moist. I’ll let you know how the plants make out.
