The Edible Garden

We have lots of shade in the backyard; we are covered by a cooling canopy of oak trees. So it's a bit dry and difficult to grow vegetables, although we keep trying. Things are growing much better this year thanks to Sluggo (organic slug and snail repellent) which is working better than Diatomaceous Earth.

Here are few herbs and vegetables which are growing well in a small corner with partial sun:

Sage, oregano, mint, and lavender

Garbage can potatoes

Tire tomatoes


See more at From Seeds to Harvest carnival.

Yes, it really saves us in the summer. It gets so hot here in Hampton. I have no flowers to three year old has been picking them all! ;) Everything in the garden is very green this year.
