I have a variety of herbs growing in pots on my deck- basil, watercress, rosemary, oregano, parsley, chives. I also have some plants growing in the raised bed garden. The groundhog and slugs leave the herbs alone for the most part. Something is eating the basil, but I think it's an insect.
I don't think the vegetables are doing as well as when I've grown them in the raised beds, but they still have a good amount of produce coming along. Sadly, the groundhog did get to the new cucumber starts when I first put them out, so they are behind schedule. I first set them out in the raised bed, which was a mistake. When I saw them chomped off, I moved them into a bucket.
And because it's summer in Maine, I thought I'd end with this photo I took of a rocky Maine beach recently. It was a perfectly beautiful day, not too hot, not too cool, not a cloud in the sky.
