  1. I know you have many other things on your plate right now, but have you considered a small raised bed in the back yard for a herb garden?


  2. Yep I have as well as some tomatoes and peppers. I may just have todo the herbs this year or have late season stuff. Just so much going on…


  3. You should coordinate the gardening with Merrin. She was out looking at what she was going to plant. She used to have a little herb garden and was really good at it. I think she wants me to recover the old herb garden here as her own.
