Garden bits

Ok, here is the promised picture of my new herb garden:

[And this is an attempt to use pics from my brand-spanking-new integration of Gallery 2 into WordPress; the WPG2 plugin has its own way of doing things, so let’s see if/how it works]:


[Oy. Too small. I don’t want a thumbnail, I want the full image, WPG2! And I want it centered! Wait…the new bed is small and bare, so maybe I do prefer to keep it small for now. But this just won’t do for other images…gotta insert new image classes to the CSS…grr…*pulls out tools, prepares to go in*]

The wee garden looks so…wee (if you click the image, it’ll go to the full-size one in the gallery)! Couple of notes—the mint will always stay in that pot so as to not overtake the bed, and its pot covers up the remains of a metal pole that once supported a chain-link fence. Double duty! The parsley will get planted eventually. I’ll be adding a few more herbs this weekend, and then will sit back and let the magic of life do its thing…fill in the bed.

*snaps fingers*

*looks at bed*

Why isn’t it full yet?

Jk. ;-) I know it’ll take time, especially since the roots have to make their home in the mud/sand that is the soil, lol. But the toads have already moved in, so I take that as a good sign. I’ll try to get pics of them in it tonight.
