my (not so) secret garden

a week or so ago i had the itching to go to some yard sales. i hit pay dirt at the 3rd one i went to where someone was selling old gun and ammunition boxes. at $5 a piece i bought the 2 she had and decided i wanted to repurpose them. so now, instead of supporting war and terror, these boxes support the earth and nourishment. they have become my garden! since they didn't have a lot of space i also added a big black tub for some herbs.

here's what i am growing:

2 types of heirloom tomatoes
lettuce
hollyhocks
forget-me-nots
tarragon
thai basil
cilantro
parsley
dill
