Happy Easter Everyone!!! It's been an awful week around here. Ash was so sick we had her at the hospital getting fluids pumped into her and everyone is just now coming around. We had a really nice Easter picnic with my family yesterday it seems like it was one of the first sunny days in weeks. We are actually expecting cold and rain again this week.
Hopefully it will get nice enough to get our garden planted. We've done the initial start of our clean up but we've got another raised bed to build and fill and I've decided to make my front yard flower area into an herb garden. I use a lot of herbs when I cook and I always dry some to use for winter. I'm thinking about putting in rosemary, english thyme and lemon thyme, Thai basil and regular basil, greek oregano, chives, lemongrass, mint, maybe some lavender and maybe some flat leaf parsley. Is there anything I'm missing? I'd love suggestions. We're putting in a ton of heirloom tomatoes, zucchini, cantaloupe, maybe a small watermelon, a bunch of different peppers, some hot some sweet. We planted heirloom carrots today and tomorrow I'll plant english breakfast radish and a mixed lettuce if the weather will cooperate. I'd like to try a few unusual items so if you know of anything fun and tasty I'd love to hear suggestions.
