    • Super Sweet 100 + yellow pear at end of bed 3
    • Early Girl between half barrels
  • Also planted some plants in my sitting area
    • 1 Shasta Daisy "Alaska" [2012-05-06 Bunnies ate it down to the ground]
    • 2 Chamomiles [2012-05-06 Didn't survive not being watered when I was on travel]
    • 2 Salvia Blue Bedder [2012-05-06 Didn't thrive, but didn't die, either. Bloomed for two months or so.]
  • And more

    • Taragon in SE corner of bed one [2012-05-06 Doesn't appear to have come back; something kept eating it]
  • Windy like crazy. Sprinkled in the a.m. but not enough to be useful. I manually watered.
