You bet. I'm always envious of those further up north that can grow all those wonderful things while we're struggling with 100 degree weather and looking at mostly dead everything. It was so NICE to see something green and thriving during the horrendous summer we had. Of course I had to keep it watered but it's only a 4x4 patch so didn't cost an arm and a leg to keep going. Lots of organic matter, compost, etc. in that bed. Fed them twice so far with fish emulsion. I am leery of using my normal chicken poo tea on greens.
I started some comfrey this year so I can make a non chicken poo fertilizer especially for those and other plants that have a higher chance of e-coli or samonella. I should be able to harvest it once every month or so through the growing season (may have to take a break during the bad heat of the summer)
