I finished many little projects while my parents were visiting. One was planting all the veggies and herbs that Brian and the littles got me for Mother's Day. My mom actually helped with these, too.
I'm doing all container gardening this year. Between the deer, rabbits, moles, bobcats(!) and birds, our yard has more woodland creatures than a Disney movie. I figure the safest bet for my herbs and vegetables are to be high up on the deck near the house. We'll see.
I have already used the herbs in pretty much everything I've cooked since planting them. I've even thrown some into a drink! This is my first time with eggplant and leeks. I'll try not to kill them. I love to have gardens and flowers, but I'm not always spot on with maintenance. Here's hoping for a greenish thumb this year!
