How Does Your Garden Grow?
We live in a townhome with no back yard, just a concrete slab. Barely enough room to grill on. So I am trying (again) to grow a container garden.
My herbs seem to be doing well - cilantro, parsley, sage, rosemary, basil, dill - and my tomatoes are doing OK, but a caterpillar or two got into one of my lettuce containers and enjoyed some good salad. The lettuces are not growing very fast.
I had planted some garlic in a couple of containers, and the lettuce with garlic has been left alone. I wonder if garlic helps keep bugs out of the garden? If it does, then next year I'm planting tons of it.
