I'm embarrassed to show you all I've been able to yield from my Herb garden so far. These cold snaps are doing a number on my entire garden. But, my Herbs have taken the brunt of it. That's ok, it will soon warm up.
I think an Herb garden is one of the most beautiful and rewarding things I get from my gardening experience.
Yes I LOVE flowers, but I find my Herb garden so enjoyable. Herbs were one of the first things I ever grew and I've been in love with them ever since. I of course only use organic Blood Meal and my special soil recipe.
These are a few of my favorite HERBS:
Basil - Mint - Dill - Oregano - Rosemary - Sage - Lavender - Parsley - Thyme
This is my Catnip. I love the scent of it, I think is because I can tell that it's a member of the mint family and I love the smell of mint. Catnip gives a
harmless "high" to felines and I think they react more to the smell than the taste of it. Well this is what happened to mine, after my beautiful Lulu got to it.
I had great results last year with my Basil, from seeds. I'm going to try it again. Last year I made enough Pesto, that I was able to share with all my 3 sisters and my mom. It was so delish with the pine nuts- Yumm!
It was easy to find a spot for them, since my new herb bed was empty.
