Life begins the day you start a garden -- Chinese Proverb

This is an informal herb patch I'm working on. So far there's Rosemary, Greek Oregano, Lemon Basil and Marjoram. Last week we enjoyed a potent batch of Lemon Basil Pesto with linguine.
Against the fence are three Strawberry Blonde sunflowers described on the package as "a beautiful soft lemon yellow brushed with rose-pink." I am eagerly awaiting blooms. Pink sunflowers?? Yes, please!
In front of the sunflowers is a compost experiment gone astray. Too many cantaloupe seeds wound up in the bin and I have a tendency to under-"cook" my compost. Given more time, wouldn't these seeds eventually decompose? I have this problem with tomato seeds as well.
