The beginnings of my herb garden....

I just started my herb garden for the spring... I've had some of my plants for years... but I had to go out and clean up... clear out and plant my new plants for the season... Here are a few pictures of what I have planted. I'm doing most of my garden in pots this year to prevent the dogs from digging them up... one of these days I'll fence off my kitchen garden so that I can plant what I want...



Lemon Balm

Spicy Glove Basil





Basil


Lavender



Oregano, Rosemary and Thyme...these are some of my older more established plants. I am also growing mint and bee balm... I'll have more photos later.



Here is my daughter's strawberry patch...

  1. With the sun shining down, the herbs will grow magnificently. There are garden plots here that I may partake in because I don't have a yard yet. I hope as the season progresses you show the growth of your garden!

  8. Ooh yay I just started one too. I had read that you can plant store bought green onions and if they get enough sun they'll grow. You just have to grow out the roots a little first by placing them in a small cup of water. I just started it yesterday so we'll see how it turns out.
