    I think Parsley and Basil are pretty plants all on their own so I plan to seed 16 spots with seed soon. Hopefully we will have lots of Basil for pesto and the butterflies will have lots of Parsley on which to lay eggs.

    Walkway garden

    It was a muddy mess when we arrived. We hauled in dirt to build it up, put a walkway through it and put up a pergola. I think it is the most fun garden we have. Requires the least amount of care and the deer have never bothered it.

    When we moved in (Dec 2000) this was just a hill of very dense clay piled up around a new storm shelter. The railroad ties were in place but I did the terracing such that it is. It has not stayed too well but I do like it. It started out as ...
