Deck Herb and Vegetable Gardens and Orchard

This summer my deck gardening has gone kind of crazy.  I have 9 over-the-rail planters filled with herbs, nice pots with the dwarf blueberries and citrus plants from last year, and cheap pots with seasonal vegetable plants.  Between all of these, the deck is pretty lush.  I kept forgetting to post about this all summer when the deck was looking nice, but today I found that my passionflower had rebloomed for the first time since I bought it 2 or 3 years ago, so I went ahead and took pics of everything else while I was at it.  Of course, a recent thunderstorm left leaves and dead branches all over the place, but I’m sure you’ll be kind enough to look past that.

    Hi, I saw your review of the Meyer lemon tree on the Spring hill Nursery site. I live near Falls Church, and I’m curious to know if you leave the tree out year around?

      Unfortunately it does have to come in for the winter. I have been leaving it out till October or November, as it is fine until temps go below freezing. I put it out this year in April and it has already boomed once, started growing some baby lemons, and is about to bloom again. The lime and orange trees I bought at the same time still have yet to flower.
