Hi Suz, I got that one and two others, The Complete Book of Herbs by Leslie Bremness and Smithsonian Handbook - Herbs. All 3 for less than $15, granted the tax took me over. I like to have different perspectives, just to see where they agree and disagree. I hope to be a better herb gardener by season's end. For me it is always in the subtleties or what you catch out of the corner of your eye that ups your craft of art to the next level or you could do like I sometimes do, get the color chart out and pick a shade of green that looks good on you and have a sample made up. Pick up an artist's brush to paint your thumb and if you flash the thumb quickly enough people think you have a real green thumb.

Those should keep you out of trouble for the rest of the winter.

countrynaturals, the other two books arrived and I know why you recommended the Rodale Herb book. Great chart on a multitude of herbs listed inside. I now at this moment have enough books on herbs and hopefully will harvest a bounty with this amount of knowledge.

The Green Thumb trick is basically for those who doubt my ability to garden. I have never killed a plant. They seem to die on their own while having plant dreams in the middle of the night. I am so blessed there is not an organization or society for the protection and ethical treatment of plants. I could, would or should be doing hard time crushing rocks by hand to harvest trace minerals for the plant families that I may have had a hand in their loved one's premature departure. I won't really know if my Green Thumb trick works until I try and sell my first gardening book, "Jokes and Humorous Tales To Tell at Garden Parties".

I have found herbs to be the easiest thing to grow. I just read the instructions for dill and it says right on the package to "plant in poor soil."

I am so blessed there is not an organization or society for the protection and ethical treatment of plants. 

Amen to that. I just tell myself I was growing the losers for compost or mulch.

Catchy title. rofl

I think we can all contribute to that project. I have a pot in the house right now that I think is nothing but a weed I've been nurturing. Last week I saw a mystery plant in the background of one of my pics that got me all excited. Turned out to be a piece of yard art that had fallen down behind the box I was shooting. With a little fertilizer, both of those stories could become "funny."Rolling Eyes

Suz, I have a tentative title, "In a Roundabout Way, The Funniest Thing That Has Ever Happened in Your Square Foot Garden". Everybody knows the longer title the better the gardening book. Maybe a couple of humorous tales written entirely in Latin for the gardeners who are also serious amateur botanists. That chapter could be Laughterus Maximus, I almost passed Latin in high school.

Larry, I can see your poster as a Garden Show on PBS, followed by Scorpio Rising with Garden Yoga and Weeding. " You are down there anyway and pulling weeds hurts less than pulling a muscle". I wonder if you could get enough people to come work out in your garden that you might be able to have a farm size operation where labor pays you. Only in America, Thank you Mark Twain, P.T. Barnum and Will Rogers.

Reminds me of life as a senior citizen - when I reach down to pick up something I dropped, I wonder, "Is there anything else I can do while I'm down here?"

The good news is that you can bury a lot of troubles by just digging in the dirt.

AWESOME! I love container gardening. My latest project is hot peppers in grow bags, so I can move them inside in the winter, since they can be perennials in mild climates.

I also have a container garden on my kitchen balcony, with dwarf citrus, kale, radishes, chives, lemon balm, bay, and geraniums right now. Tomatoes and cukes are started inside to be transplanted out there when the nights warm up.

Let us know your plans and someone here is sure to be able help you along the way. Most lessons we've already learned the hard way, so you won't have to. Rolling Eyes

Hi Alex! Welcome from Atlanta, GA!

Sanderson (one of the admins) is also in Cali. So I'd look at her archives first. But you'll find us a chatty helpful bunch. :-)
