rosemary, basil and strawberries . . . oh my!

Last year the planters on our front porch contained a mixture of herbs and flowers. This year we decided to forgo the flowers in favor of more tasty options. So we increased the number of basil plants and added banana peppers, cilantro and strawberries. I somewhat doubted that the strawberries would do much but thought the vines would be a nice "spiller" over the planter. Much to our (mostly Joseph's) delight, we have a few strawberries. We check on them multiple times a day to see if they're ready. Look closely - I believe Joseph may get a taste of a "planter strawberry" later today.
