Yesterday I finally got around to planting an herb garden in the two whiskey barrels I bought at Home Depot way back in April. I planted: basil, Italian Oregano, bunching onions, sage, Italian parsley, spearmint, and peppermint. Don't they look beautiful in the whiskey barrels?
Remember what my tomato garden looked like last? You can refresh your memory here. Look at how much the pineapple heirloom's have grown since then! It has gotten so big and out of control that my husband had to stake it and weave rope along the sides to hold the weighty plant in. These plants have not been big producers thus far, but there are many, many green tomatoes growing. It's just taking it's sweet time.
Remember my sad little artichoke? It's the first picture in my previous garden post. It has practically quadrupled in size.
Here is a picture of two of my green heirlooms. I'm
chompin' at the bit patiently waiting for them to ripen.
Do you have an herb garden? Do you find it convenient (and more importantly cheaper) to have fresh herbs on hand whenever you need them?
