new plants

Here is the basil we planted today in bed three.

Here's some yerba buena that we planted months ago in a pot.  To its left is some lemon balm, and to its lower right is some mint.

Here's a garbanzo bean we planted--we planted three in bed four.

Here's rue, which is an herb with a strange background.  I mean, it's very symbolic--for example, it's the one plant a basilisk can't wilt with a glance, and weasels who have been bitten by the basilisk go off and eat rue to recover and return to the fight.

Finally here's the marionberry!  I think we're naming it Orange Tree.  Or maybe not.
