Thank goodness I had the CSA share this year. My little garden didn't do very well. Not that I actually expected it to - I was mainly using this year to figure out where stuff should go.
This bed in the middle of the East yard did very well. It contained Chadwick cherry tomatoes (failure for me, the plant was gorgeous and prolific but the fruit was mealy and gross), basil (did okay but had a hard time keeping up with my cutting), yellow wax beans (great), lemon thyme (wonderful!), and nasturtiums (great). I also put herbs in two planter boxes at either end and all but the cilantro and parsley did great.

|Got enough oregano to dry and fill two pint jars. Nice!|
So the yard is coming along. I'll move the beds around next year and (hopefully) start laying out the patio stone.
