My Yearly Attempt at Growing Veggies on Lavender HIll


So far the broccoli and the Kale have been decimated by our local woodchuck and bunny. The tomatoes, onions, basil, strawberries and carrots are still hanging in there!

    Gena, I see that you utilized cinder blocks to grow onions/chives in. I used them to grow my other heat tolerant herbs like thyme, oregano ect...they thrive!

    We're using cinder blocks to create a "plantable" foundation for a garden enclosure also. They're cheap and so versatile!
