Herb garden update

Our little garden is thriving. We weren't sure if they were even going to survive, but I'm happy to say that we only killed one plant (cilantro) -- and he had a rough day on the wine tour, so I think he might have been dead previous to us even planting him.

The herb garden started out like this:


And now it looks like this:

It was hard to get a good angled picture, since some of them are growing like crazy, and they overshadow everything else. The one in the left forefront is a dill plant, and it's gotten quite tall. The ones in the back are tomato plants - and we really need to get a couple of cages for them since they're out of control. The one in the middle is a walla-walla onion plant, and then some herbs that you can kind of see (basil, oregano, sage). I'm amazed they're growing, and I'm excited to eat what we've grown. Now we just need to figure out how to harvest some of the plants, and we'll be good!

I loved reading about your wine adventure before and I appreciate the update on the plants. I'm glad they all made it except cilantro, I hate cilantro!

Sarah you've turned into Mother Smith... J/k- I'm so proud of you for being able to grow something- I have yet to conquer that feat. Just to make you jealous, Deven and I ate at Winger's last week. The wings are as good as you remember. :)I just read New Moon again (yep I'm a loser) and it was better than I remembered.

Sarah, you and Cory are so cute. I love how you compliment Cory and let it be known how much you support him, love him and are proud of him. That's really sweet. How long have you guys been married now? It's also cool that pretty soon Cory graduates. Oh, I want info. about this detox diet thing you guys are doing. Congrats on your herb garden, it looks good.

Wow! Those are really growing! My garden isn't doing too well this year. (Sniff sniff.) I don't know why. Maybe plants from wineries are well-fertilized so they grow better!

Here is Utah; we have had so much rain the month of May and so far in June; that I think all our gardens are rotting in the ground! Glad yours is doing so great. We got your announcement the other day in the mail. Congrats to you both.
