Less Than Perfect

We're fortunate in that we live close to working farms with access to fresh produce at different times of the year but I've been anxious to grow some of our own. Nothing elaborate just peas, peppers and tomatoes. And I plan to do it all in containers and probably on the deck.

I've also gotten into the habit of bulk buying Nasturtium and Morning Glory seeds each year around this time. While the Nasturtiums are edible (flower and leaf) the Morning Glory is great for quickly adding a riot of color to that area of the garden with a less than perfect view. My preference is for the Heavenly Blue. And both plants do very well in poor soil.
