I think not….
Hidden in another bill,sponsored by a Senator,
was signed into law yesterday…….
Barack,you have soooo let me down….
and this is why I grow my own……
It’s soooo easy….
Tomatoes(Purple Cherokee)growing amongst other plantings
Swiss Chard
Green leaf lettuce and carrots
Carrots(mixed amongst the carrots are Green and Red Bell Peppers,and Basil)
Toss in some Peppermint Nasturtiums….
(thrown together,with tomatoes,radishes,and green onions=great salad )
.…neglected to take a photo  of the radishes and green onions….
The first of the spring/summer green beans…
Japanese Eggplant,growing amongst tomatoes,Giant Liriope, and Blackberry Lily
You want a great ground cover?
Try Oregano….
A nice shrub?
Try Rosemary….
Wanna keep aphids away?
Try growing your own garlic….
Plant it around your roses.
Jjust make sure you buy it from an organic source,so it’s not chemically treated.I bought mine from Whole Foods.
A nice border plant?
Parsley works just great….
Baby Meyer Lemons
growing in a container,thank you,very much
See how easy it is to fit growing your own into your landscape?
if you think you have to take the chance
….and buy GMO’s… 
read this…
Try it….
You’ll be better for it…..

Oh my gosh you make me want to try my hand at growing veggies. The only thing is, is that we have nightly visitors that wreak havoc around here at times. Do you have racoons visit your gardens? I'd love to see your gardens in person as they are wonderful. I need to visit our botanical garden again to look at their fantastic vegetable garden. It was truly amazing.

Thank you for show and tell. I really enjoyed it and got inspired.

Have a lovely Easter ~ FlowerLady

Ooooooooo your garden is so wondrous! I do miss my gardens at the old home, but it is what it is. This GMO thing is pretty frightening. Could you send me a tomato please???

Lorraine-you could grow lettuce by putting seeds in a flower pot.Rosemary makes a great landscape shrub.Oregano is the best ground cover,but tends to be a bully in the garden.I plant veggies amongst the flowers in the garden.That way they get tended to by the passing bees and butterflies.

Deb-yes,the GMO thing is very frightening.Why can't they leave well enough alone? I'd be more than glad to send you some tomatoes.I think I may have bumper crop again,this year.And the neighbors are gonna hate to see me coming.....

Your veggies make mine look so puny. :( And the herbs... I failed miserably at my first attempt. I'll try again this year. Imagine the gardening I could do in a warmer climate (or maybe it's the challenge I like?)
