Here is the pea picture I took this weekend. I went for more of the scatter method than the methodical SFG method with these as the boy was screaming from the deck that he needed me to come see the newest Lego house he built.
They look small here, but now they're ready to start climbing. The cabbage has also broken ground as have the pickling cucumbers, but no sign yet of the broccoli. I'm still holding my breath.
For all of the veggies I grow, I've never grown herbs. I have that rosemary bush, but that's it. My girlfriend in NC was pretty taken aback by this and gave me a cutting of her basil plant that she rooted for me. I'd never really liked basil, but she used some in a recipe while we were visiting this summer and I saw the light and transferred to the basil-dark-side. Lynn-Lady, here is your basil plant now....
I've kept it alive and actually have used leaves from it several times and you've inspired me to grow an oregano plant which we're also using. You've added flavor to our meals and we thank you.
On a Keychains for a Cause note, today I got in some bus driver ribbon. Those bus drivers are so under paid and have to deal with so much that would make a normal person drown themselves in the nearest water fountain. And, listening to a suggestion from my students at school, I picked up some "Princess" ribbon with silver sparkles. I'll put both of these up later today or tomorrow. That's probably it on the design front for me unless anyone has other suggestions. I'm all ears.
Don't forget you can find us on facebook. We'd appreciate all of the support and links we can get.
The morning comes early...at least for another 172 days. Sweet gardening dreams.
