Your garden amazes me, Kamille! I wish I could grow something like that. It's beautiful, and functional, all at once! And good job, to Ben, for the anniversary flowers! -Biz

Those look gorgeous. What's your secret? My herbs are not doing that well. My parsley is kind of pathetic this year. I think I always cut too much off at one time...


I don't think I have too much of a secret aside from asking the local vegetable & fruit garden people what I need to do. I do have run into problems with some of my herbs due to our erratic weather in the NW. I actually planted in April (I did starter plants) and what do you know--snow falls out of the sky about two days later.

I know the less water the better + sunshine+good drained soil help a lot. I also use a natural fertilizer. Once you see budding, cut it off so it doesn't go to seed (later in the summer). Hope that helps.
