Chives & Peppers
My favorite- Lamb's Ear
Basil & Strawberries
Rosemary & Lavender
Apple Mint & Parsley
Mexican Red Sage, Salvia, Four O'Clock
Black Sweet Potato Vine, Pink Gaura & I can't remember what the blue one is :)
Well I am still learning how to garden in this Texas Heat ... and just gardening in general!
I tried small amounts of the strawberries, green beans and peppers just to see how it went this season. I got about one of each- haha! but I did learn that the strawberry & pepper plants did the best, so I may try more again next year. Probably won't do the green beans again.
Rosemary & Lavender have done the best and have tripled in size since last year!
The Lamb's Ear and Sweet Potato Vine tolerated the heat well. The Mexican Red Sage got a little wild and overgrown- not sure what to do about that plant! I thought the mint had died, but after a good rain it has come back.
I really enjoy gardening, but I have a LOT to learn. Our backyard is not the prettiest, but having a few potted plants and my little garden bed helps a little and at least makes me smile when I see something that I planted has not died yet :) Any gardening tips for me? What should I do to the perennials this winter? Oh dear... hope they come back!
