My spring plantings – Day 1

All the book promotion for The Edible Balcony ironically delayed my spring plantings until mid September.
The thyme bush is three years old now. I had to replace the oregano with a new seedling.
The tioga strawberries are fruiting for their third year (and probably last)

 chives, some silverbeet  and nasturtiums as well in the rosemary pot …
New plantings of butter and red coral lettuce
4 tomato seedlings interplanted with purple and common sweet basil

… these will be towering giants in a few months…
Purple leafed basil not only has a wonderful aniseed flavour – it also provides a stunning visual contrast to all the greenery. 

There are two ripe lemons on the Dwarf Meyer lemon tree and dozens of deeply perfumed white flowers
… a perfect enticement for the bees…
