This fall I want to plant more dill to let flower. Especially in the front flower beds. I also want to plant basil in the front this summer and lots of chard and kale in the front flower bed this winter.

Thinking ahead...Future Garden Plans
This year I thinned out my strawberries big time. I'd grown sugar snap peas around a teepee trellis in the garden where I grow my strawberries and I only had a few strawberry plants left at the beginning of spring. Now the entire bed is covered with plants. I took out 20 or so plants to put in the holes of my cinder blocks but they just keep making runners and multiplying. We have gotten quite a few strawberries, too. I put some in pots and those have done okay. They haven't made all that many strawberries. I think it was beneficial to thin the plants some. Next year I should probably add some compost to the bed. I also need to remember to cut off the runners from the parent plants so that they put their energy into making berries instead of runners.
