My non-garden garden

Considering that I didn't "do" a garden this year, it's really quite surprising how many plants I have - 2 lemon balm, the parsley and garlic chives (not shown as they're in the other garden) are carryovers from last year, but the rest are all new.  Obviously I don't know the meaning of "I'm not doing a garden this year."

F1 Black Jalapenos are my jalapeno plants that I grew from seed from Renee Studebaker - they came from a plant of hers that was apparently a reverted black pearl pepper.  Considering that 2 of the plants have regular green leaves and 2 have the purpled leaves, I think it will be interesting to see what we do end up getting from them.

Wow, your lemon balm looks terrific! I have mine in a pot and it's struggling. Hanging on but lackluster.

Roberta - It looks better in the picture than it's actually doing. Plus it's so big because we didn't have a hard freeze this year and I'm a wimp when it comes to pruning - I've already pruned back my rosemary like 4 times this year because I can't just cut it back more severely than "get off of the sidewalk"
