This Year’s Garden :(

June 26, 2010

I got a late start on my garden and didn’t plant any seeds, just purchased plants. These include tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, collards, swiss chard, watermelon. I think plants do better if you plant the seeds directly into the soil. These seem to get pummeled by rain and then the sun comes out and scorches them. I know that’s not exactly how it is but it seems that way to me. I also planted flowers, and I intend to go pick up some more herb plants for pots. I always have to try gardening each year even though sometimes it’s not a success.

herbs

My herbs have decided to thrive this year. I have, of course, the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Also, basil, oregano, tarragon, cilantro, chives, dill, mint, and lavender. I am not one hundred percent sure how to use all of these herbs. The most exotic herb I am growing is stevia, the sugarleaf plant.
