and look what I get to capture on film.
I have a tendency to kill all living green things. I try every year and this is the year that my plants actually survived my black thumb. In this photo I had just finished watering my plants for the last harvest of the season when my daughter decided that she wanted to pluck a pepper for herself and in process knocked the plant over and broke the pot. Then my son decided that it would be a good time to pluck all the peppers off the plant. After that there isn't anything that I could have done to save it. I chucked it over the rail. Thankfully my tomato plant had just been plucked clean as well. That one didn't do to bad either. At least I didn't kill them this year. In the background I have a lemon balm plant which grew like a weed. I didn't need a green thumb for that one and behind the lemon balm is a lavender plant that you probably can't see. Nothing much came of that, It still hasn't bloomed yet.
At least my kids enjoyed having a container garden this year. The boy always wants to water the plants in the mornings when he got up. I hope this is a start of a garden of some sort every year.
