Vegatable garden build update.

Were back again to update the vegetable garden build.
There are a few more stone boxes built and land cleared.
The big boxes are 12 x 5 feet in size and the small box is 4 x 3 feet.
Hubby has put tons of work into these with building and re-bar enforcing.
All so my butt can sit and garden.

Rosemary June 2018

This is the rosemary and pineapple sage plants both bought in tiny 4 inch pots 3 weeks ago. Still unsure where to put them this year.

Botanical Name
Rosmarinus officinalis

Plant Type Herb
Sun Exposure Full Sun
Soil Type Loamy, Sandy
Flower Color Blue
Hardiness Zones 6, 7, 8, 9
For a head start, plant the seeds or cuttings indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost. See your local frost dates.
Plant the seeds/cuttings in well-drained soil. For best growth, the soil should be around 70ºF.
Be sure to give your plants enough room to grow. Rosemary grows to about 4 feet tall and spreads about 4 feet as well.
In the garden, plant near beans, cabbage, carrots, and sage. Learn more about companion planting with herbs.
Both are in 2 gallon pots now.
