I joined a community garden and "inherited" some existing plants -- but I don't know what they are. I've gotten some great help, but am still stumped by the dead looking thick stalks. They have thick bottoms almost like a palm tree with layers of dried stuff around them. Today I pulled one up and it had a tuber like root that was bright red and long going in a couple of directions.
I think someone suggested that the tall dried stems with little pods might be basil? Could it be lavender?
Lastly, in the middle of a huge bunch of what I know now is arugula, I have some large green leaves - any ideas?
I appreciate all your help! Happy gardening...
