Horseradish buds

Posted by Picasa
The perennial Vegetables and Herbs seem to be doing well this year. The horseradish was planted about 2 years ago and hasn't been harvested or root trimmed as yet. It is probably time to start before it takes over the bed. On the other hand the strawberries and digitalis might keep it at bay. The leaves are a bit hard to make out in the photo, they are bronze colored this time of year and deeply incised.
Last weekend I finally started some seeds that I had left-over. Started 2 kinds of basil (Lemon and Sweet Green), Dark Green Italian parsley, High Carotene Tomatoes, Touch of Red Calendula, Lunaria and some Pansies. I don't have much hope for the flower seeds (dated 2002 and 2004) but figured it wouldn't hurt to try.
Also pulled a bucket of Cardamine from the garden. The weedy brassicas are doing well
