Last year was my first foray into herb gardening. And when my little garden took off right away, I got excited. Only to find it overgrown and out of control. Weeds took over and herbs from one pot ended up in other pots.
Anyway, I never harvested anything from my sad little herb garden.
This year I worked under my knowledgeable mother-in-law who grows stuff without killing it or having it turn into a weed garden.
We decided to nix the pots and grow my garden in a raised bed I have on my side yard. And rather than start everything from seed, we bought plants at Walmart. We ended up with Basil, Oregano, Cilantro, Roma tomato and Grape tomato plants.
I also wanted Chives and Rosemary, but since WalMart didn’t have any in plant form, I picked up two seed packets, and I’m crossing my fingers those seeds sprout.
I’m most worried about some critter helping themselves to my plants. So far, so good. But if that deer who eats the tops of my tulips starts coming around and eating my plants, he or she’d better watch out or I’m going to go all cross-bow on it, Katniss style.
