High Top Gardening

I was out working in my garden a few days ago and realized that I haven't posted any pictures of it. Last year I started out with a little bitty, wall mounted herb garden (see here) but I quickly realized that I needed more space. Chris built this garden box for me - it's about three and a half or four feet tall by six feet long, so I don't have to bend down to work in it and my dogs can't bother it!

I've got herbs, lettuce, fennel, green onions, chives, and three kinds of peppers growing right now.
Tarragon and chives:
Parsley! All of the large plants are still going from last year. The new plants are just starting to sprout! It's a learn as you go thing for me, because we didn't have a garden growing up. I really enjoy being able to go to my backyard and get what I need though!

The other two large green leafy plants in the top picture are cilantro. I use a ton of cilantro! It's my very favorite herb. I had to remove my basil plant because it was GIGANTIC. I think I'll get a separate planter for it!

What do you grow?
