My Herb Garden

IMG_1082

Beautiful sunshine at the moment. Classic calm after the storm. Woke at 3 AM to pouring rain, and all I could think about was my newly planted “baby” plants. Wondering if the deluge too much for their tender little leaves.

This year, I’m determined to coax herbs into thriving plants. We had a number of overhanging limbs cut down that once shadowed the deck, making the area more hospitable to growing something other impatiens. I prepped the window boxes that hang off the railing of the deck with potting soil and Perlite and tucked in the beginning of what I hope will become a thriving herb garden.

Oregano, flat-leaf parsley, and thyme were the first, to be followed by chives, tarragon, rosemary, and copious amounts of basil.

Let the nurturing begin!
