Acquired some great discount store pots with self-watering trays. To give them a bit of kick, we taped off the edges and watering holes then painted them purple.

The army of seedlings came off the windowsills and outside for the first time. We gave them a few days outside to adjust and reduce transplant shock.

We planted each tomato and pepper with companion plants. Spicy and sweet basil varieties are our favorites.

    It seems that because of our little rodents (gophers) nothing is sacred to them, so my garden consists of a yard full of planters short ones, tall ones. I still am trying to arrange them in the most attractive manner I can but right now, not so attractive.
