Hi, I'd love to hear what's in your garden, and look at any garden pics you post. I've got a few pics up at my lj as well as my "planted today" lists.. which if you check out you might notice some of which are daringly late this year, as I didn't start seeds under lights this early spring (I was growing wheat grass for my cats) :D I'm in Massachusetts where the growing season kinda doesn't start until the end of May anyway, lots of short season crops for me, especially this year. How about you? Where do you garden?

I've been into permaculture, organic gardening, heirloom seed, biodiversity, herbs, and companion planting for 4 or 5 years now, before that I lived in an apartment with no patio, so my living room had big tables full of herb plants up against every window. Man is it awesome to be able to get to know how to garden on the land! I love it.

So, what's in your garden this year, what are your favorites to grow, are you trying any new things this year, what are some of your uses for what you grow? Whatever you want to tell me about is fun.

My success with rosemary came when I got a grow light for winter.

I give it about 8 good hours of sunlight, mist it occasionally and it looks ok. I set it outside as soon as weather permits and then it takes off.

upside down it looks like the flowers

Thanks for this, I'm going to try it - I have the grow light, just never used it for rosemary before, and I feel like that will be the thing that finally helps me stop murdering rosemaries. :)
