Tales from the farm…

We have replanted green beans and okra since they never sprouted. They are both growing like crazy already. We also planted more carrots, roma tomatoes and sweet potatoes.

While we were looking at the vegetable plants last weekend I ran across a cinnamon basil plant and it smells wonderful. The tag says that it is good in Asian dishes so I am looking forward to trying it in a stir-fry. I found some cilantro seeds for $.20 so I put them out and they are doing great so far. The other herb bed is growing like crazy.
