Over the Memorial Day weekend, while we were at Home Depot, I suddenly got the urge to start a mini vegetable garden. In addition to basil, I purchased two cherry tomato, one cucumber and one bell pepper plant. At the strawberry fields, where we picked a few gallons of berries, I bought four Roma tomato plants. I have no idea if any of them will produce much (I don't sound too hopeful, do I), but it doesn't hurt to try.
Below are photos taken one week after planting. Fingers crossed, we'll be harvesting a few veggies before the summer is over, and plenty of basil to make fresh pesto.

The dahlia is growing quickly. I can't wait for it to start blooming!
We also bought two new hibiscus plants this year, one red and one yellow and red (below). Aren't they spectacular? These flowers make me want to jet off to someplace exotic.
So tell me, what's new in your garden this year?
