What is a 'dye' garden?  I mean, I think I might have the general idea, but what kinds of flowers or plants would be in it? 

Peace -

There are loads of dye plants, like marigold, sunflowers, indigo, black eyed susan, Dahlia  etc....  There are a lot of plants that have good pigments.   What exactly i'll be planting all depends on the zone... we are all the way up in zone 2/3....

Absolutely!  Mine is in full gear, I picked a huge bowl of tomatoes and cucumbers just off of the containers on my back deck this morning.  Woo hoo!
