That sounds like a wonderful garden! We have started to plant this year, but I keep having to cover things up because we are still getting freezing nights and snow! Crazy year!

Hi,
My garden grows dill, basil, chives, parsley, lemon balm, sage, rosemary and a few others that I can't think of right now. I also try to grow all the veggies that I eat. What I can't grow in winter I preserve or freeze to use in the winter.

This week I planted lettuce, spinach and potatoes. I will have to wait about ten more days to put out the sunflowers, corn, beans, cucumbers, and wait till mid-April to put out my tomatoes and green peppers. I love to farm!

Blessings,
revshay

Which herbs do you grow? My basil is doing well, we have had pesto four times already this year. We have to make it with sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts due to my grandsons allergies, but it is still mighty good!

Well happy belated birthday!
It has rained constantly since we got back from vacation so I haven't checked my garden yet. But my basil, which I keep close to the house, is doing well!

If that is the case you may love the fragrances from a company called Thymes. (Thymes.com) I love their fragrances, and although I am not a huge perfume person myself (I have some but always forget to use it, lol) I enjoy their bath gels and body lotions as well as Moon Flower perfume. Free samples with every purchase. (no, I don't have any ties to this company, just really like it emoticon ) Worth checking out as a special treat for yourself.

I planted my basil this past weekend. It looks so good . . .
I have never perfected cutting it back. Some people can get it to grow into a big bush! Can you imagine how nice your yard would smell?

I may have killed a basil plant I recently bought emoticon I was trying to cut it back to
grow more...wish I could get lavender to grow! I have some chives,thyme,and mint that came back...I get frustrated coz my rosemary dies no matter what I do,but thinking it may have survived?!!

I love that as well. My mint has a tendency to take over though, yikes! I have a hard time with Basil even indoors, and strangely only my basil. I recently learned that I was harvesting the leaves incorrectly (from the bottom). Hopefully I will do better this time. It too is my favorite herb...LOVE it on mozzarella with tomato and a fig infused balsamic. Yum! emoticon

I love when the herbs come back on their own!
My sage, rosemary, oregano and lavender all survived the winter.
But my favorite herb, basil, never comes back on its own.

I would really love a garden-around this time of year I feel such an urge! ...though I must admit
to somewhat of a black thumb-though I attribute that to having very little sunshine-lots of shade!
I will at least have herbs-I have a couple that keep coming back and will plant more!

Good Morning,
I have never been an gardener but both of my children (grown and on their own) and I are going to give it a shot this year. We have all purchased organic seeds and are ready to give it a try. My son is doing it in hopes of saving money on his grocery bills. I love the thought of going out to my own garden and picking something for dinner.

Does anyone else here garden? Due to the late spring we have just started ours this year, although the winter crops (garlic, onions and parsnips) are now being harvested. So far this year we have planted lettuce, broccoli and brussel sprouts.
