Here is the garden today. Much growth. We also took down the boxwood bushes in the background and added a pergola. We added kiwi, goji berries, and hops to climb up and on the pergola.

In the herb garden we added nettle, wintergreen, sweet grass, dill, white sage, valerian and a few others. Thanks to Hobbit gardens at the Indy farmers market.

 

We have harvested quite a bit. Chamomile, calendula, horseradish, comfrey, various mint, catnip, basil, feverfew, lavender, lemongrass, yarrow, and evening primrose. We hope to harvest more this year.

 

We have lots of other updates stay tuned.
