I had been planning to do a herb garden this year; not only because I would like to use more herbs in my cooking for the flavor they give but also because of the health benefits of eating herbs. You can research almost any kind of herb and you will find that they have medicinal or other benefits. Some of them have been used for thousands of years to get these benefits.
I have had a problem in the past with something I was growing, mint, spreading and becoming a nuisance. Some things need to be planted in pots so they can not spread uncontrollably and mint is one of those. This being the case; I took some large nursery pots and put them in the ground with the tops level with the surface and I planted my herbs in those. There should be no danger of anything going beyond the confines of the pot. I planted some basil, two kinds of parsley, thyme, marjoram, dill, 2 pots of cilantro, set out some mint, the stevia my friend bought Sunday and re-potted some rosemary I have had a couple of years. I intend to plant some sage but didn’t have the seed. I have three other pots I can use but don’t know what to put in them. I am open to suggestions.
I got my blueberries in the ground and they are looking good. I also used my tiller to dig up another portion of my garden so I can start setting out my tomato and pepper plants. I will wait until the storm comes through; my plants are somewhat delicate and might not fair well if there is real hard rain or high winds.
I intended to load a photo of my new blueberries but it just was not to be. I am new to adding photos and it just didn’t want to do what I wanted it to do. What are you going to do? I will get the hang of it though and I will be having more photos on the blog, just be patient with me, okay.
