Lou Malnati's employees put their green thumbs to work this morning and participated in our yearly planting party at the Home Office in Northbrook. The planters that were assembled will go on display at our restaurants on the patios. With a little sun and some water, these planters will be overflowing with colorful flowers in the weeks to come.
According to the Chicago Botanic Garden's May Checklist, this is the perfect week to "plant warm-season flowering annuals, vines, herbs, and vegetables." If you're itching to plant your garden but need some help with a design, check out Better Homes and Gardens' Garden Plans for a little help. They have recommendations for vegetables, shady areas, and more.
What flowers/vegetables will you be planting for the summer?
