First, is there such a thing as too much basil? Yes, I’m dead serious. Give me a number as to how many plants you think is too much for a family of four. And we’ll see how my insanity compares.
In a related brain dump, I have around 125-130 tomato plants (all but four that I started myself). 31+ pepper plants. I almost wish I were joking. *sigh*
The older one and I went to the farmers market today. Saw a bay (leaf) tree at The Herb Lady. Decided what the hell. We use bay leaves enough that it’s not a stupid idea. I plan to just stick it in one of my dollar tree pots once I get the marigolds out to intersperse with everything else, so when the weather gets colder I can just bring that sucker back inside.
To the right is my row of onions in the front of the house. I’ll be harvesting the back half or so for green onions when I plant the zucchini and cucumber. At least that’s my plan.
Aren’t the purple flowers pretty? I love those cute chive flowers, they just make me happy. Need to relocate though, dh wants to play with the blocks they’re in. No worries, I’m working on getting the hang of companion planting.
