potager de pots: garden update 2

This is the year I turn the yard gardens back over to grass, so I am using two back areas for container gardening, well, same as before, but exclusively in those areas.

Today I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing the spaces and putting the pots around to be planted over the next four weeks. Here are photos I took; it's not neat or pretty yet, but definitely will be by June. I'll have some tomatoes and peppers, of course, lettuce and chard, onions, a few potatoes, bush beans, and I'm going to try these tiny carrots that can grow in shallower ground. I have flower seed mixes so will see just what comes up, but if I get hold of a little money I'd like to have some dahlias again and a few other interesting flowers.
