Just saying hello…

Just saying hello…

I'm new... figured I'd say hello. I live in New Orleans, very hot-humid weather... I'm thinking of trying to plant creole tomatoes soon, along with a few other veggies! I'm really excited, but know nothing about planting anything. I put a few flowers in the front yesterday, we'll see how those fair and try to report back with names and combinations. I have a little girl who is turning 13 months tomorrow and I really want to do this with/for her. The person who raised me had a garden and playing in it and with the veggies are some of my favorite memories. When I'm getting closer to getting the plants I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions. Thanks for help in advance! -erica b. **edit** Just found the "tags" that went with the flowers I put in yesterday. There are two pots at the end of our steps (two story house that starts with wide steps all the way up to the porch) on either side. I put French Dwarf Marigolds in both by themselves. They are gold with a red-orange liner I guess you could say? What would be good to put with them, or are they better left by themselves? Further up on the steps, near the top... two more planter pots on either side. They had a pink/white small flower already in both in the centers from last year. Them seemed to fair well enough. I put six small Verbenas around each side of the plant already there. Some purple, some whitish? Then two Dusty Millers on either side of both. Is that too much? Do you think the planters will get over-grown? I've no clue, just picked what may look pretty and think I may have done far too much for the last two. The Verbenas and Dusty Millers have a good three to four inches between them, but still? I have a bad feeling about next year if they survive?
