    Herbs and garlic chives

    Decided today that we (my parents and i) would grow some garlic chives from seedlings.
    So we went to the local nursery to pick out a planter box.
    We also got some garlic chives seedlings.
    They are in the planter box now.

    I also have a big rosemary bush in the middle of my garden.

    Rosemary is a lovely scent

      I just realized that all the tall grass blades growing in my garden were Chives. Had no idea until a friend I invited over told me, and I ate one.

          The place I'm moving to will have a spot for a garden. So excited to grow my own food. Gonna do herbs in planter boxes and tomatoes, cucumber, squash, and maybe even some corn in the actual garden

            Have you seen this guy?



            He has all kinds of great stuff on his channel. What's funny is that while he's obviously an excellent gardener, he's the first to admit he doesn't know much about carpentry!

              Just took another pic.
              To be fair not much has changed due to the amount of wet weather we have had this Spring.
              As of tomorrow it's supposed to get warm again.

                  I usually don't care for long videos where the presenter wants their face on the screen the whole time while they explain 5 minutes worth of content in 22 minutes of video. And what I really don't get is why the longest face-centric videos are hosted by freaky-looking wankers, the sort I avoid at festivals and farmer's markets.

                  But this guy, freaky-looking as he is, goes into all kinds of great details. I never heard of puncturing a tomato stalk with copper wire to protect the plant. But I really like the way he keeps everything in such a compact plot plan. I have 3 times as much room to plant, but I now think it's too much. So, I'm going to build a pond and a fountain and maybe a scale model of the aqueduct in Istanbul!

                  One thing I don't care for is his reliance on galvanized culvert sections for raised planters. They look hideous and I can't help wondering what his zinc levels are.
