I have a new area that gets really hot in the afternoons in the summer and I hope to get some herbs going on that side. I need a good hot area for good oregano so that the flavor shows up better. and some more thyme and a perm place for some chives and more walking onions. the grand babies have been chowing the little new bulblets from my walking onions so I need to really get them going better than just the here and there spots in the flower beds. plus some of my mints are not doing well due to the invasion of black raspberries so I have a moister area to move them to and hubs can just mow the ones that crawl under the garden edging.rhoda_bruce said:Potatoes, corn, cow peas, limas, blue squash, cantalope and about 20 or so various new herbs.
Not sure if I will actually be able to pull all that off though, but I'll sure try.
I have some cow peas that I got that I didn't get to plant last year I forgot them! can't remember the name either BRB well booger.. I'm missing a jar of seeds somewhere.. but I want to say razorback -guess I know what I'll be doing tomorrow!
and it is time to be testing some of my older seeds anyway. I have some older carrot seed to check before I decide to buy new. maybe that would be a good job for me and the grand daughter to do.. she can count to 15 and i can put the seeds in wet paper towels and we can check them together. She's already informed me that I didn't grow enuf cherry tomatoes for her last year as they ran out.(it frosted lol) I may have to find some orange ones as she had me grow yellow submarine( a very nice bright colored and flavored little pear) and green goose berry and black cherry(see where this is going?) and large red cherry and I had a couple volunteers of OSU blue that are like large cherries with a very dark purple/blue blush on the sunny side that she just loved even tho I thought the other types tasted better.
