Yeah! The garden is growing. These are our peas. I just put up posts and a beginning wire for them to start climbing. My wife Laura is so excited.

Maricgolds are a great garden plant. They are a wonder drug of the companion planting world. So plant them everywhere.

Basil, oh sweet basil. I love my basil and so do my tomatoes. It is said that tomatoes product 20% better when planting with basil within 10 inches. I know this is true. One year I planted a row of tomatoes and did 2 tomatoes and then a basil plant. Then by my 3rd row I ran out of basil. The 3rd row was eaten by bugs and died. The 1st and 2nd row did awesome!

I love Rosemary, especially with anything chicken. This is my only Rosemary plant that was given to me by a man who has a organic garden in Joplin.

Romaine lettuce are building heads and looking good. I was afraid the cold would hurt them, but they are fine.

Well happy gardening. Please comment and let me know how your garden is doing.
