  2. I really like your lavendar. I'd love to plant a bunch here and dry it for sachets. Did you start out with a plant or did you start it from seed?

    Isn't gardening fun? I really like yours. I might try that approach for my herb garden.

  3. Bethany, I used a plant start because I've had rotten luck starting herbs from seeds. I want to plant more next year.

    The herbs love my garden box! I've never seen them do so well anywhere else. The soil is 1/3 each peat moss, compost, and vermiculite, so it drains really well, which I think is key.

  8. Your garden looks great. The basil looks like it's about to flower. If so pinch out the flower heads to stop it or it will flower & die on you.

  11. Diane, Red Chief loves to help! We haven't had many weeds (one of the benefits of this gardening style), but he has picked my marigolds for me, and he loved helping his daddy build the boxes.

  12. Looks beautiful! My housesitter had to ask how he would know when tomatoes were ripe. I couldn't stop laughing that "farm-boy" had no idea. He pointed out that he was an apple farmer and nothing more.
