ZOMG my bean plant has BEANS ON IT. PLURAL. MORE THAN ONE BEAN. ZOMG.

My cucumber plant has a weeeeee cucumber a-sprouted.

My tomato plant has no fruit yet, but lots of little yellow flowers.

I've eaten a couple of strawberries off the strawberry plants, but they're looking kind of frail still.

So exciting!!

I just picked and ate the very first strawberry off my strawberry plant.

It looked like a strawberry.

It tasted like a strawberry.

So despite the fact that my herbs all died, I'm going to call the gardening experiment at least mostly successful, as I have been able to eat something off my plants :D

The green beans have little tiny beanlings starting to bud too, and the cucumber vines are looking healthy, but not productive yet.

:D

Historically, I have a black thumb. I've managed to kill spider plants, aloe, and cacti. I am just that awesome. So of course, I'm gonna try gardening again.

My options are marginally limited, as we live on a third floor and have only a north-facing balcony, but I have acquired some plants to pot on the balcony -- I'm not ambitious enough to try too much with seeds yet. :)

Fruit/veg: A cherry tomato vine, a cucumber vine, two strawberry plants. I was looking for greenbeans, but no luck, so I might try those from seed and see what comes of it.
Herbs: Catnip, oregano, sweet basil, lavender, peppermint.
Pretties (all to go in the same large pot): A dracaena, an orange lily, a red geranium, some petunias (dark purple, lavender and white) and some yellow marigolds.

I got these plants from my coworkers when I got back from Michigan :) Originally I wasn't sure what any of them were, except the African violet, but they have since all been identified.

Clockwise from the front: African violet, ivy, dieffenbachia, spider plant, prayer plant, and kalanchoe in the middle.

Woo! I have my pot full of mint! I repotted the peppermint and the lavender this morning, but ran out of soil. I'll have to get some more before I can repot the Ginger mint. While I'm out, I might get some flowery plants too, and have me a nice big hanging pot of geraniums or petunias. :)
ginger: (lobster OF DOOM!)
At Fred Meyer last night, for a grand total of $5.50, I picked up two little peppermint plants, one French lavender, and one - get this - GINGER MINT! :D

Tonight, I will repot them, and then I will have my pot full of mint :D

I have decided that I want a flowerpot of chocolate mint, and another of spearmint. Just so I can smell them all the time. :)
