A quick spin around my garden

My little container garden is growing in leaps and bounds. Its mostly herbs, tomatoes, a variety of lettuce and asian greens. I have a passion fruit vine and a black mulberry tree in amongst the pots waiting to be planted out.

I'm particularly excited about the strawberries that have started to appear. At the moment I have five strawberry plants in hanging baskets and pots. I hope to plant some more soon.

My ever faithful gardening companion Tana, just checking to see if there is anything to eat.

If only my garden beds were ready, then I could really get started.

Hope you have a lovely day
Cheers Lisa

How do the strawberries go in hanging baskets? I love your container gardens, it is what I have done here with herbs and greens.. I never had luck with my tomatoes.. got to love anything that is practical and pretty.

Thanks girls....I've not used hanging baskets for strawberries before, so I can't give first hand experience. I did see it on Gardening Australia last Saturday and on Wendy in South Africa's blog. I guess as long as you keep the baskets well fed and watered it should be good.

It's looking good Lisa, hasn't the warmth made a difference?
