Tomatoes, Basil and Petunias - OH MY!

So, as Shooter and I are busy gardening on Sunday afternoon, we decided we'd go ahead and plant our vegetable plants also. We had done some container gardening for a couple of summers and then taken last year off - I missed the juicy sweet tomatoes from a couple of years ago so we bought some more to plant this year.

Shooter got some (hopefully) delicious, red cherry tomato plants and here are two of them.

We also have a yellow pear tomato plant. We had one of these a couple of years ago and they're absolutely delicious!!!!!!

Here are the other two cherry tomato plants.

And what are tomatoes without some basil!!?!?!?!? This year I decided to split the container into two pots, two plants each. Previously I'd planted all four into one pot and I thought splitting them might help them flourish morel

We also bought some Petunias to add some color to the back patio. Some are above and some are in boxes along our patio railing.

The petunias are a gorgeous purple color and I can't wait for them to really get blooming!

I am so ready for fresh veggies! If you like tomatoes, you should look into Mr. Stripey tomatoes. Yumm. I don't usually like tomatoes but Mr. C had me try one of those and I loved it!
