Alas, the indoor herb garden is bare. Actually I wanted to reorganize things, so I uprooted everything. Some things that we don't use much will not be replanted. In starter pots I have the following: dill, rosemary, cilantro, basil, oregano, chives and tyhme.

Laurie tends about a 1/4 acre garden plot out back. Always great results with tomatoes and peppers (hot and sweet), decent results with root veggies (potatoes, horseradish and onions). But leafy veggies like cabbage, lettuce and Brussel Sprouts we have no luck with. The pests eat them faster than we can Sevin them.

She also keeps a compost bin out back. Started with hay and most table scraps go into it. Problem is it attracts possums. Just had to shoot another one last night. May move this topic into the Cooking category and make that a Cooking and Gardening section.
