    Congratulations for being Farmer Of The Day!

    I had (and liked very much) those same plants you have in the picture. But, I can't seem to keep them for more than a year. First of all, if I want to keep them alive, I have to move them indoors for the winter. 'lest they won't survive outdoor. Second, I don't know if I over water them (which I feel I tend to do) because the leaves start turning brown & the stem mushy after three or four months indoors.

    Anyway, good luck with your garden!
