It’s 65 and sunny. Spring Training games are being played 30 minutes away. The garden is waking up. Here are things your garden shouldn’t be without:
The above is a rosemary bush. It was bought at the garden department of a Home Depot about 8 years ago and stuck in the ground. It has been through many an Arizona summer and also freezing temperatures and still looks great. The added bonus is that you always have a sprig of fresh rosemary when you want it but you have to take it off the top because Kenzie does leg lifts on it.
Then you need some aloe vera like above. I don’t know if this will grow in your area, but if it does, it is really useful. For burns and scrapes, just go outside and cut off a leaf, squeeze it and let the gel go on the injury. Get it as soon as you can after the problem occurs and it is a miracle.
Of course no garden would be complete without a garden gnome. None of us have the heart to tell Kenzie that the turf he is protecting is of the “Astro” variety.
