Lavender, Peppers, and Caterpillars

Does anyone have advice on planting lavender? My friend gave me a packet of lavender seeds a few months ago, I planted them in a small pot, and only one has been growing…if you can even call it “growing” (see picture below). I have no experience in planting lavender, I live in West Los Angeles where the temperature is pretty consistent and we don’t get much rain, and I’m wondering what I can do to help this little guy grow bigger. Any tips are welcomed!

On the other hand, I threw some seeds from an orange bell pepper I was cooking with into a pot, and lo’ and behold I’ve got some sprouts! I loooooove orange bell peppers, so I’m hoping these continue to grow big and strong!

Did you guys notice that little guy there in the pot? He’s adorable.

Herb Garden Bon-Bons

These are awesome! I saw this in Sunset Magazine, and I think they are the most perfect gift to give (or get)! For $14.95, you can get what’s shown above: 8 garden “truffles”, two each of Basil, Parsley, Chives and Thyme. (Or you can select a different set with different herbs…this one is the “Italian Herb” selection.) And it comes in a cute little truffles box complete with a list of which truffles are which. I especially love how it says, “This candy is for planting – not for eating!!”… very cool idea.

Get it here at the Moulton site.
