So shade gardens are the toughest to grow... I have a pretty good list of perinnials that do well in shade if anyone is interested.
def. start a post on good shade perenials. i think sharing information is GREAT! gardening is just so therapeutic!

We can't fence in the back side of our property which opens up into the woods and that's where they are all coming from. I've tried both bone and blood meal and that hasn't worked
Very cool and informative blog! Hopefully we can move out of DC soon, and leave the fog behind us, so that maybe I can plant something too. I bought a basil plant from Trader Joe's last year and it died.
basil grows really quickly so you need to make sure that the roots have enough room to grow (you protbably needed to repot it)...you should try again as it does not need THAT much sun.

where do you want to move?

      Wow Tammy your garden is impressive. I had never seen a mangosteen before, are you going to try to grow them?
      Sadly I don't have a green thumb... i somehow managed to kill chives!

        Ohh, Tammy so exciting.

        I have been giving away parsley and basil since those guys have gone crazy in unusually wet Colorado June. However I did not cut the Cilantro in time and it bolted. So I guess I can harvest corriander(sp?) seeds once the flowers are done blooming.

        I have many little green tomatoes emerging and I am very excited abou them in my first gardening season.

          Where are my gardeners at

          Wanted to let you know I scored on some nice hostas at Home Depot for $3.33. They have all of their perinnials on sale for cheap! So if you commit to watering through out August (hot) it is a score for next year!
          I also bought catmint, coral bells and some funky white flower- I forget what it is. Oh and their lillies are 4 for $10. I already have a ton!

            Kate thanks for the tip!!!

            My Porter dark cherrys are all ripening, like 1 or 2 a day and they are so flavorful and amazing!!!


            I did a major basil harvest (it was out of control), I am drying them on the stem for now and them will crush and jar it.

            My oregano took awhile but now is growing like crazy.

                You have to harvest the Cilantro a lot, or else it "bolts" flowers.

                It was crazy how fast it happened. So anyhow I am drying the corrieander (sp?) seeds and drying them right now. Then you can crush grind them for corriander poweder.
