This one is Purple Sage. Tastes the same as regular Sage, but its purple when its young.
One of my personal favorites is Siam Queen Thai Basil. I use it in Pho and Salads...
The Blossoming Curry Plant is a Southwestern looking plant.
I grow ornamentals also, here is some Dwarf Ruellias which grew out of the sidewalk next to some Quinoa. I've noticed that some of the Quinoa Plants flowered and produced seed in the spring, and then went dormant. While others like these didn't flower, produce seeds, or die back when it got hot outside.
The Trumpet Vine is a long term project. I have had to rebuild the trellis several times because the Trumpet Vine has become very large and heavy. But, the pay back is a plethora of Orange Trumpets.
Here is the North Garden from the opposite view.
Dusty helps a lot in the garden. Here she is helping harvest some Turnips.
But I pay the price for the help. When I am not looking she eats my green Tomatoes. Its funny how I can have these beautiful Tomato Plants, and there is not one Tomato on them. Apparently she has a taste for hard green Tomatoes. For my Fall crop I will be erecting a fence around the Tomatoes...
