The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Yes That’s me. I have planted all of the boxes in my patio garden and everything is growing fairly well, peppers are setting on just fine and I want them to hurry up so I can harvest. One of the Cayennes is a good 6 inches long, Now all I have to do is leave it long enough for it to turn red. Peppers are my favorite all kinds except Bell Peppers, they are too boring. I did harvest enough Basil on Sunday to make Pesto for dinner, so I was a big hit that night with everyone. Oh well! just can’t be hurried I know. Better find something else to do.

Sounds like you don't have to worry about warmth...peppers and such... It has been so cold that all my plants are going nowhere... MMMmmmpesto... I like basil but my fav is plain old italian parsley and garlic...
with a nice fruity olive oil...MMMMMMM.
I grow herbs too, but don't do veggies... I have mint ( 2 kinds -Spearmint and Peppermint), thyme (2 kinds- French and Lemon) Chives (2 kinds -Regular and Garlic)
Sounds like the ark, doesn't it??? 2 x 2 Winter savory, Italian parsley, rosemary, basil and sage. Just the old standby's... I love to use fresh herbs so I know what you mean when you say "can't be hurried"...
Planted some asparagus this year...hope it survives. Enjoy your blogs..

Hi Lori,
Well today it is actually cool, I even opened the windows, at 3 pm it was only 72. That is cool, yesterday was 87. But that is what you need for all that hot weather stuff. I love to use herbs in cooking, so I try to grow as many as possible. I have a huge rosemary bush, plus oregano, marjoram,thyme,tarragon,peppermint, spearmint, flat leaf parsley, purple sage, french lavender and basil. I tried lemon thyme once long ago and it grew great and every time I used it my husband said You put in too much lemon! So I just ripped it out and put in the tarragon instead. I have tried to find unusual recipes to use herbs in. My son and I both like to cook and we try all kinds of strange things. I think the most bizarre is the rosemary chocolate tart, very dark and chocolatey flavor with just that little hint of something different...rosemary! My daughter is a little hesitant to eat grocery store greens so she was just thrilled to have me grow 2 kinds of lettuce and spinach this spring, and I think I'll try to have another crop this fall, maybe I can even keep it over the winter in a cold frame. The kitchen timer just went off, making curried split peas for dinner, gotta go.
Talk to you later!
