I'm a noob gardener and my herbs are getting out of control. We've had record rain in Chicago and things are growing crazy. I spent some thyme (GET IT?!) trimming things down today. Gonna hang some herbs to dry.
Wish we had that problem in California. Here we're starting to adapt like Fremen on the Planet Arrakis. We're given credits/grants to let our grass die and replace it with native succulent plants on a drip system. We're now on mandated water restrictions and so any drop of rain is precious to us.
I have a small patch of garden myself in the backyard that gets some sun. I'm growing Japanese zucchini, bell pepper and sun gold tomatoes. I tried a strawberry plant this year for the first time, yet I'm not sure it's going to make it through the summer.
