We've had this little triangle area at the back of our house for many many years. It's small enough that trying to mow it with the mower was......a pain to say the least! Weed-eating it was ok, but again, a pain! Here's a 'Before' picture....
Last year, I became interested in herbs. I thought I'd clean out that area, as it's really perfect! It's about the right size, and it gets all day sun, and it's on the south side of the house, so it's protected from our Northern blasts, in the Winter. But alas, I didn't get around to doing anything about it last year. 'Other' things kept calling my name. Instead I settled for a few herbs in containers.
But this year I was bound and determined I was going to 'Get~R~Done!' Figured I'd better start before 'other' things started calling me again. So here is a progression of my new herb garden area.
Here I've put in the top section.
The following day, the lower section. Thank goodness we have a tractor with a front end loader! Don't know what I'd do without that thing!
And here's where I have all the plants planted. I have 4 lavenders, 4 chives, 3 sage, 3 oregano, 3 thyme, some garlic, 1 rosemary, 2 cilantros, 2 parsleys, and 2 basil plants. I also planted some flowers to pretty things up a bit, since I had the space.
Final touch was to get some mulch on it before we started getting these rains this week!
So now, while I wait for all this to grow, it's time to start reading up on how/when to harvest everything, and how best to store it; meaning freeze it? dry it?
I'm very proud of this accomplishment! It was good exercise too!
