It's that time again! Time for me to show you my new plants on the front porch. I don't have anywhere but the front porch to set anything, my landlady won't let me dig in the lawn so I make do.
Just this week I got a chance to buy and pot some flowers for this year, I also got my tomato plants planted and now I can sit back and watch everything grow! I still have more I want to get, some marigolds and maybe some petunias but for now, I'll just watch these grow and see what happens.
I got my Juliet Tomatoes planted with a couple of sprigs of basil in each pot, that worked out really well last year. It keeps out the bugs and I have my salad fixings all in one place! Some peppermint was planted in it's own pot, it's the first time I've ever planted any peppermint but I think it will be nice to have to add to my sun tea. I also planted three pots of New Guinea Inpatients, I just love these little flowers because they will grow very nicely and bloom all summer long. I also bought a nice Asiatic Lily just because I love them! Hopefully it will be blooming soon.
A friend gave me an interesting lily bulbs that I've never tried before, they are called Crinum Lily and should be some really showy flowers! They are just getting started but I'm going to show you one pot so you can see them in the beginning. I also have another new plant growing called a Plumeria, it's a tropical plant my landlady gave me some cuttings from. They are just now starting to send out some growth so we'll see how they do also.
So this is only the beginning of my front porch plants, I do hope you keep an eye out for more articles on their progress.
