Growing, growing, growing


While the garden was getting soaked by sudden heavy rain, I finally got around to compiling a list of what the Ladyfriend and I have growing this year. Some are established perennials, a few of the herbs are newly planted purchased starts, and the majority of the vegetables are from seed. Fingers crossed for a great growing season!
