Raised herb garden bed
Originally uploaded by measi
The first stage of planting is now in the ground - my herb garden is built (as you can see in the photo), and my veggies are now in their earthboxes.

This year's herbs include: thyme, sage, 4 types of basil, cilantro, dill, mint, lavender, garlic chives, and lemon balm (aka "melissa"). Vegetables include 3 types of tomato (beefsteak, roma, and chocolate cherry), green bell peppers, jalepenos, and cucumbers.

Photos of them and other stuff in my yard, including the daylilies of doom, are up on Flickr, too.

Sometime early next week I plan on getting flowers for pots around the yard - color is good! :) No idea what I'm planting yet - I'll just see what looks good and interesting at the nursery.

I've also added some photos to the Boston and Rhode Island sections, and finally got the photos from our trip to Chicago up. I haven't really gone through to delete bad ones yet... so there are quite a few crappy ones, I'm sure.

Very cool! My sister and I did our seeds a couple weeks back and they're growing really fast!

I don't have the patience for seeds, to be honest - I start from young plants. :) But I imagine they're going to take off pretty quickly as things warm up around here.

I'm really excited to see how things turn out this year.

Tomatoes and cucumbers are very plentiful, we grow those every year and always end up with a TON. We tried carrots one year, those didn't go over well :(

My dad got gerber daisies (I think those are what they're called) for our yard and if you're looking for color, they're a good choice. We got bright orange and bright pink!
