This year I've started a little herb garden with rosemary, lavender, mint and thyme. Pictured left you can see two lavender plants and a rosemary bush (centre). I grew the lavender from seed about 2 or 3 years ago and the rosemary I bought in early Summer. Slugs and snails don't seem to bother much with herbs (thankfully). I hope to grow more herbs from seed and add them to this area each year. The wood log was washed up along the local shoreline and I thought it would add some interest along with some slate rock. A work in progress really.
|Above: Some of my seed packs - I really enjoy growing things from seed.|
|Above and Below: Thyme grown from seed this year. It started off so very tiny (above) however, it has ended up a decent size by the end of Summer (below).|
|The rosemary thrives even now in December. I used some of it for Thanksgiving Day cooking! I suppose it has been the star herb this year!|
Happy Late Thanksgiving wishes to American bloggers!
