Growing a garden is very challenging in my house. My part of NJ is deer country and the very few spots I could maybe fence lack sunlight. This year I purchased a raised bed and put it on my deck hoping that the deer would not be cheeky enough to get to it.
Today I was so happy to harvest some of my first cucumbers, one pepper and a whole lot of basil and lemon verbena. The cucumber and pepper will probably be included in tonight’s dinner. The basil will make a savory pesto. I’m just not too sure what to do with the Lemon verbena and peppermint. Any ideas?
