    Maybe you should sell the basil; have you seen the price of fresh herbs in the stores??
    I've never grown herbs but you're making me rethink that. :)

    Will go in back alley and start selling em..

    "Hey bro want good herbs" 😆

    Still might make more selling as straight basil. :)
    Course IDK, been awhile since I bought good herbs.

    A gift!🎁 Marygold seeds. I’m going to plant some of these today and about four varieties of sunflowers.😊 Later in the season, I love to see my sunflowers as I drive up the road, it almost seems like they’re saying welcome home!👋🏽🌻 And it’s been raining the last few days so my plants are happily growing!🌱 I’ll try to post some of their selfies later sometime.😃

    Wow.. that's a lot.. you can plant your whole city.. 😆

    Same here! I ran out of space to plant them but I couldn’t let them die! Yes, I’m officially a plant hoarder!🤦🏽‍♀️😆

    That’s a cute idea!😀🌼🌿
    I’m on some of the Fitbit gardening groups too and there’s a woman there that takes wildflowers seeds when she goes on walks.
    I like it!😉👍🏽

    So as I mentioned, I'm in zone 3 so my veggie bed is just sprouting. I have kale. I have carrots. I have beans. I have one thing that's definitely a beet and a whole bunch of "eehh... you could potentially be a beet... I'm gonna weed around you for a bit and see." And I have a feeling I need to re-plant my Swiss chard 😕

    @SuzanneC1l9zz: wow, here in zone 6b my mind is boggling at the challenge of growing veggies up there!

    Do you have any perennials? Looks like you can do chives, but not scallions.

    My strawberries are at peak and I am so loving them! My first search said strawberries need zone 5, but then I found this page which has suggestions for varieties for zone 2 and 3, plus 27 other hardy fruits:

    Herbs in pots are doing well. been harvesting too much basil ...might have to give some away to coworkers.. 😆

    Pesto freezes beautifully, just so you know in case you have a freezer. Jam jars are a nice size, or the 1-cup tempered glass bowls with plastic snap lid. When we grew lots of basil, I'd freeze many jars of it, give them to folks as part of their Christmas present, and we'd eat it all Winter long ourselves as a nice treat. While one can't microwave it to thaw quickly (the parmesan gets weird), it thaws very quickly if one puts the frozen jar in a dish of warm/hot tap water. If in canning-type jam jars, the jars will take that hot/cold stress OK, too.

    Yes, pesto does freeze beautifully. For a while every AM for breakfast I had home made pesto on toast topped by a sunny side up egg. It's just me eating the pesto so I used the small (2.5 oz) plastic containers that the duck sauce from Chinese restaurants comes in.

    If I blanched the basil very quickly, like 3 sec, the pesto would stay greener before and after the freezer. The basil taste would be a little less sharp, which could be a good or bad thing.

    If you have a local gardening group on Facebook you could likely move quite a few of them there :)

    I used to use Freecycle for excess plants, but FB is working better.

    Here’s a plant update! The beans are too yellow (along with many other things) we’ve had a bit of trouble stemming from some bad soil we got this year, but things are looking better for the most part. We just amended with some blood meal for nitrogen and hopefully that helps!

    @pabmac

    Looks like maybe you're giving them too much water. That can cause yellow for sure.
