I've been growing lemon thyme, Greek oregano, dill, and rosemary for weeks, but I got some pots on Freecycle, so I bought some Italian parsley, chives, French lavender, and some boxwood basil today (below):

 

 

Also bought a jubilee tomato plant:

 

And bought another Opuntia vestita again, since I lost mine last year:

 

And an Opuntia microdasys (bunny ears cactus). The one I got is yellow, but I prefer the white:

 

And last week I bought a Mammillaria pilcayensis:

 

 

And a green wheel sempervivium:

 

And some Coral Reef Chinese sedum:

Sandi, when I was a kid I used to grow carrots from the tops of grocery carrots.  I also still grow potatoes from sprouted potato eyes.  Some of those suggestions are fun for kids, but not so great for gardening - if you don't have a lot of room, it's better to grow named varieties of tomatoes.  The exception is heirloom varieties, which do grow true from saved seeds.  I didn't know about the lentils, and I LOVE lentils - wonder if they are worth the garden space?

Dallas very cool!  We have some of those or similar in my neighborhood.  They have a Dr. Suessian look.  Weeping mulberries are sort of similar. I like them because they make edible fruit.   How about a Hydnora africana?

Yes, Dallas, dejected, and like a monster will peek out any minute now and the arms will turn into octopus with suckers.

I like this plant. It looks so wonderfully dejected.

Oh, in many ways I'm an effin boyscout, I just don't want to have that kind of reputation. Not sure I could outlive the shame. I should have planted wolfsbane or deadly nightshade instead. I've seen some of those flowers you posted before, but never that vegetable sheep. That's interesting. Truely otherworldly. Martianesque.

Some not-daisy-like flowers.  But I think you are more wholesome than you let on.

Comment by A Former Member on March 26, 2012 at 8:15am
Thanks Joan. That's the one. I'm on my smartphone, and it's not as easy to use for me. I'm zone 8. These were a bit of an impulse buy for me. On second thought, daisy-like flowers are a bit wholesome for my dispositio, but we'll see how they do.

I tried the link, Dallas, but did not get the flower. You might try this one:

What zone are you in? This particular one grows in zones 9 & 10. I have grown the hardy variety in zone 5 but they don't survive our winters.
