The Driveway Garden

 Though I have 2 other gardens planted, I still do a lot of container gardening in my driveway.  Hey, it's close to the house and always gets the most attention. I have 50 tomatoes planted here this year.  If the do well, I will be doing lots of canning.

 I do succession planting with things like green onions and lettuces.  They do very well.

 I have blueberries, beets, eggplants, potatoes, olives, bay leaves and every herb you can think of planted here.

 Though the pepper plants are still small, they are covered in peppers.  The zucchini likes it here too.

 Tomatoes, basil and marigolds; all started from seed.

 None of my blossoms have set yet but I expect that to happen soon.

 I plant basil under all of the tomatoes.

 It's sprinkling this morning and  a certain puppy won't walk 5 feet on the wet patio to get to the dry spot under her umbrella.

 Beans growing up the light post.

All of my snapdragons came back from last year.
Cilantro, basil, tarragon and a cucumber grow in these pots.  I even have celery and okra growing in pots. Are you a pot planter too?
