  2. Does the question mark by your garlic mean yours isn't growing well? I just have a few little sprouts up.. and admit, I haven't given them any extra water. .I will hope to get you some tomato plants that I start too!

  3. You have made me hungry for a fresh garden salad! With John's diabetes, we are learning to eat lots of vegetables.

    Don't you love the aroma of basil? One of my favorites!
