Parts of the garden

 This is Eric's basil and pepper patch. :)  We have only three varieties of basil in this box (sweet, Thai and lime), but in my other herb boxes we have tulsi (or holy basil) and pineapple basil.
 Cabbages and brussel sprouts share a box with cauliflower and broccoli.

Tomatoes, pinto beans (just a few for experimentation) and strawberries (same, few for experimentation) are the raggle taggle gypsy box.
 Here's one of the herb boxes.  I have a lot of new seedlings scattered in both this box and my less populated one.  Our larger plants are lemon balm, sweet mint, spearmint, feverfew, foxglove, holy basil, thyme, sage, rosemary and oregano.  (I haven't checked to see if the bee balm survived?)  Seedlings I'd like to grow aside from various flowers are echinacea and calendula.  It'd be cool of the purslane/shiso made it or the chamomile.  We're trying to sprout more holy basil too--the scent of that stuff is amazing.
 We're growing a fig tree, black berries, rasberries and lilies in this corner of the yard.
 And then our bean tee pee for fun needs some wedding so it can keep growing.
