in the garden - April 15, 2017

It has been about 2 weeks since planting in our raised beds here in mid-Missouri. This week we are hitting a heat wave and the growth has been amazing.

Our seeds...both vegetable and herb...are from Strictly Medicinal Seeds. I ordered from them due to the availability of the large amount of herb seeds available. Previous years we have very much enjoyed Seed Savers.

 Herb bed. Includes Calendula, Chamomile, Echinacea, Marshmallow, and Valerian
