Fennel grew wonderfully in my raised bed herb garden during last year’s drought. I did not however, save seeds to sow for this year. I chose a healthy fennel while visiting the Garden.

I chose pennyroyal which I will use in a bug-off blend in the future.

I plan to get back to making oils and such.

The owners of Rock River Perennials encourage people to

walk up the woodland path to the gardens around their home.

Stay tuned for more information on this and other local growers in the Upper Peninsula. Elise Bunce was a wonderful grower, very freindly and helpful.
