To green your backyard, head over to your local Bi-mart and buy seeds or starts, or plugs. With the price of gas, the crazy chemicals that are on store bought produce, and the joy you could get from harvesting your own veggies at least to me growing a garden is all pros and the only con is time (and water).

Here is what I planted today: cuban oregano, golden sage, purple sage, pineapple sage, 2 lil’ basil plants, green zebra tomato and cherokee tomato and lemon balm
I promised myself none of my plants will die from lack of water this year as I am not a very good garden maintainer….but a good starter for sure! So far so good, my garden grows strong and green.
toms planted several weeks back
lettuce is coming along strong (yum)
