The 2011 garden final list (I swear I am not bringing anything else home!)

Keep in mind that all this is in addition to our various perennials that came back up from last year, like the rosemary, oregano, daisies, roses, blueberries, etc. I need to get some good pictures of the garden, it seems to rain every time I try – NOT that I am going to complain about rain!
