In the past, I’ve made little arrangements of annuals for the two big pots on our front porch. I typically don’t plant annuals in our beds, so I used the pots as a source of color all season long. We did some re-arranging with our landscaping this year (we’re changing the whole bed on the side of our house for perennial fruits…yay!), and I decided that I would rather use those nice front pots that enjoy plenty of morning sun for growing food instead of flowers. I started out with a packet of spring mix, which has been great because we have already gotten one harvest out of it and plan to get another two before the heat sets in. Once the warmer weather arrives, I think I’ll switch to some hot peppers…what do you think?
