TOTD: I've been very lucky in my little perennial garden around the patio outside the French doors in the bedroom. Everything came back from last year, in fact absolutely thriving. Even the chives came back in this almost 3 foot tall strawberry pot. They've returned for over 5 years now.
My veggie garden is thriving. Have 5 tomato plants and 3 pepper plants in large pots on the patio. The strawberry pot has basil, thyme, chives, rosemary, 2 kinds of mint, oregano, parsley and cilantro all growing from the little individual pockets on the side of the pot. I use them almost every day for cooking.
