I have a vegetable garden this year!!!

For the first time in over 25 years, I have a REAL vegetable garden!  I'm planing my veggies out in the back, in a nice sunny spot.

So far, I have 3 tomatoes, 3 New Mexico chili peppers, 6 red cabbage, 6 green cabbage, 2 lavender, some alyssum, 1 Swiss chard, and 2 pineapple sage (to attract hummingbirds).  I have sage and basil, also.

HOWEVER, SOMETHING is nibbling on my cabbage plants!  I thought it was a rat, so I go out every late afternoon and cover my plants with plastic bins from the 99 cent store.  I even found 3 for $0.99 at Dollar Tree!  What a find!

I wanted to interplant some herbs with the vegetables in the hopes that they WOULD keep some pests away and they do seem to be doing their job!

I'll update this as things move along...
