update: Ive got little baby cucumbers!!!! they started flowering a week or two ago, and ive got to get new pics, but i have itty bitty little cucumbers starting to grow!! i transplanted my tomatoes and they're so much happier!
Just showing you what your rosemary can do if you "let it go". I had a baby that I put in one of those big mineral lick buckets. I do absolutely nothing with it, I never water it or anything. It's huge! I love it though, and it smells so good. We trim it occasionally and dry the rosemary for ourselves and others. Fresh rosemary is the best.
I wish I could tell you the secret, but I really don't know. Several years ago we started one (in some of those busted pots actually) and when we decided we didn't want the potted herbs there I stuck the rosemary in the mineral bucket and wished it the best of luck. Less is more with them it seems because you can see that it is doing well, lol.
I wish mine would grow!! my rosemary is the tiny sprout in the far right mini-pot, the three good lookin ones are my tomatoes, of which there is only one left, thanks to a freaking monsoon! the big ones are my cucumbers, which are doing AWESOME. the cucumbers are like, 2 inches long, some of em. others are still just starting. So excited!
and, as you can see, my cilantro is thriving. my parsley, not so much :/ And i have 2 kinds of basil!!! i thought i jsut bought weet basil, but it definitely looks like ive got some italian in there too.....
