    @Indoor...
    I'm in the SE of the city, too. Garden did OK. Looking to do a whole lot better in 2011, tho'!

    @Desert...
    Pole beans.

    @Rocking...
    Used a little in an herb mix. The plant we put in was small so I've left it alone, mostly!

    @Stargazer...
    Beds did pretty good. Looking to implement some crop rotation so the soil only gets better in the future.

    How is the raised bed doing? I tried afew different types of raised beds and found the onions in the cinder blocks did best for me.

    How's your garden doing so far this year? I'm still dying to find out what part of Dayton you're from!

    I'm growing lavender, too! Have you tried cooking with it?
