Open House: How Does Your Garden Grow?

A friend of mine is an avid entertainer and gracious host, and fittingly, her husband is beyond skilled as a bartender. So the couple has expressly designated a patch in their garden to grow essentials for their favorite cocktails — basil, mint, lavender, and lemon verbena among them. Closest to the kitchen door, they grow regulars needed for their cooking routine, such as tomatoes and avocados. While most gardeners decide the locations of their plantings based on factors like aesthetics and sunlight, my friends created their garden plan based on the function and usefulness of their plants. Interesting, no?

So I'm wondering how you decided upon the plants in your garden. What do you grow? Where do you grow your plants? Why and how did you decide what to grow? Tell me by commenting below!
