A fading garden

As some of you know I did container gardening this year. It was a mixed success because I have been so tired growing other things (inside me) that I have not been out on the deck much. We did get TONS of tomatoes and lettuce.. perfect for our needs.

Late in the spring I planted some jalapenos that took FOREVER to sprout but they are now the star of the deck garden! There must be something like 25 jalapeno peppers on the plant now and lots of blossoms still coming up!

A rogue pumpkin plant is growing under our deck. It decided it would grow up and over the weeds under the deck and has been putting out TONS of blossoms. There doesnt seem to be any pumpkins tho. I think the bunnies are helping themselves to the pumpkin and squash blossoms and baby fruits.

Hmm.. I wonder if blossom-fed rabbit is tasty... :-)

Some of our flower boxes are STILL growing with colorful flowers. Here you see some johnny jump ups (ID courtesy of B at the Culinary Fool!).

The marigolds that I planted with my lettuce garden container are all thats left in that container. They have really loved this shallow plastic thing.. massive blooming.

Here is what it looked like at planting.
