Hmmm, are you asking if this is what we'll be planting this year? Pretty much, yes...we had all of that last year, well, not the Horseradish, Kohlrabi, Pak Choy...but everything else was in our garden.

Our garden boxes have Beets, Swish Chard, Spinach, Fennel, Lettuce and Snow Peas growing right now. The Herb Box has Oregano, Thyme (2 varieties) Rosemary, and 2 varieties of Sage still doing well even after our hard frosts. We'll replant the Basil, Chives, Dill, and Tarragon soon. The Lemon Balm is coming back...lots of new growth at the base of the dead looking sticks.

I'll wait to see what else comes up before adding more to the Herb Box. This is one we share with everyone in our Apollo Garden, and other neighbors who need something quickly to add to whatever they're cooking. This is what it looked like in June, then grew more lush during the summer


Al and I were looking at this box yesterday and have decided to remove the hoops...we don't use them and they're dangerously close to snapping. Al had one of these smack his face last winter when trying to adjust a hoop...not a fun thing at all! Ouch! Anyway, the hoop isn't necessary and the herbs look so lovely draping over the edges of the box. As we walk past the box and brush the plants the smells are delicious! We let some of the plants flower to attract more bees...even the hummingbirds come down to take a look.

I love our Apollo Garden! sunny
