The Growing Challenge #8 – A Pictorial

April 30, 2008
The comfrey with its protective ring of crushed eggshells.

Ruby Star echinacea, also surrounded by crushed eggshells.

One of the new lavenders in the lavender strip. You can see a tiny little bud hiding on the tall stem if you look closely.

An overview of my garden. That’s a ball, not a freakishly round melon or squash, just in case you were wondering.

My overwintered Italian parsley.

Garlic. My first time planting it.

Overwintered chard, planted last spring. Still doing amazing well.

My little eggshell rings enclosing lettuce seeds. Unfortunately some of them blew away overnight, because there were six rings!

Oregano, which I started from seed last spring. It was still smallish in the fall, but is coming back strongly.

    The garlic is so exciting! I love growing it but keep missing my window of opportunity here.
