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.

  1. Just something to mention…make sure you change your wishlist if you buy the stuff….your birthday is coming up soon, and I will not be held responsible if I get you something that you already bought…
