My first attempts are container gardening on my balcony.

Buddha in the herbs

I have an extensive herb collection this year, more than a few of which are mints. I bought a new stacking planter to save some floor space on my balcony. I was also able to find a home for my mini-Buddha statue on the top floor of the herb tower.

My buddha snuggled in between Provence Lavender, Chamomile, Sweet Woodruff, and Calendula.

The other herbs in the planter include Anise, Lemon Thyme, Lemon Verbena, Eucalyptus, and Spearmint (not all are picture here).

The herbs are doing well despite the heat. I can’t wait for the Lavender to bloom so I can harvest the flowers for tea!
