    So I finally added more pictures of my garden space. They aren't great pictures because I took them this morning in the "pre-rains" of Tropical Storm Andrea which should make landfall here in SC tomorrow. I have 26 raised beds of varying sizes, a potato hill and some tomato spread around my back deck. And of course I had to include a picture of my faithful ole' girl, Charley :)

    You're growing stevia !!! How well does it grown in SC? I'd like to try it here in OH, but not sure how to use it if I did. :)
