Herb and Veggie Garden update!

So just about the best thing you can do to be a Green Mommy is growing your own veggies at home. This allows for your family to have fresh organic home grown fruits and veggies and lessens the amount of consumers buying from large mass produced farms.
If you don't have a green thumb than you can always buy local from co-ops or farmer's markets. This does the same thing without actually having to grow them yourself.
I recently started gardening again. Where we live it is too hard to garden in any large amount since we live on the main street of town with people walking by our house every few minutes who love to pick/trample gardens. I have planted flowers but I don't like to try and plant vegetables and fruit where we live. When we move to a quieter part of town again I will start gardening in large quantity again.
However I have sort of found a way around this. This year I began pot gardening. I currently am growing Tomatoes, Mint, Rosemary, and Basil. It is actually going quite well. Today I transplanted the herbs from the terrarium to pots to bring outside. They weren't doing very well indoors. I am hoping that full sunshine and proper drainage will turn that around. The tomatoes though are doing amazing. I already have several large tomatoes hanging on the vines.
Here are some pictures.
