What's your fav garden plant?

So I was pondering my massive garden wish list and thinking it just isn't long enough...

What's your favorite garden plant (fruit, veggie, herb) that you've grown in the last year or two?

What's tops on your wish list?

Re: What your fav garden plant?

My favorite is my lavender plant, the way it looks smells and tastes, just DIVINE! I love when one of the critters blows past it the air is filled with its scent.

I have several varieties, but this is the type I am most fond of, it just took off and is very hardy, does not like moist soil or being watered in the evening or having wet leaves. Sounds finicky, but it isn't too difficult to provide those conditions so long as you remember.

I made lavender sugar for gifts for Chrismas and salt scrub too from our rosemary plants, we have several varieties of rosemary and I like them all. I like making homemade gifts from things in the garden. They are very well received.

Another of my favorite herbs is Greek oregano, it is easy to grown and tastes so good in dishes. My chickens and bunny don't bother it much, which is crucial for anything in my backyard.

For my wishlist I would like to add lots of squash this year. I am so proud of how easy it is to grow and just adore the large broad leaves. I want gobs of it and everywhere, lol.

What is on your wish list? What is your favorite?

My faves are cilantro (because it is a super detoxing herb) & parsley (we use a lot of it in cooking).... we've never had lavender, but I want to add it... TY for the reminder Resellmybelle ! As far as fruit & veggies, we love to grow muskmelon, strawberries, asparagus, cukes, tomatoes, & squashes... we grow others, but those are our faves!
