Green Thumb Sunday


With moving my gardening is limited to pots and house plants at the moment.
Because my daughter, Sherry, knew how much I would miss puttering with my flowers , this spring she gave me an herb pot.
The herb pot is a strawberry glazed pot holding 2 types of sage , 2 types of thyme, rosemary , and oregano. The herbs came from Freeman Herb Company.
Do check out their web site lots of info there, recipes, planting designs etc.
This assortment is flourishing , I have been able to use all of the herbs in my cooking over the summer. I plan to cut them back this fall , dry some for using and
hopefully I can hold the plants over the winter to make an herb garden in the spring using one of the plans from Freemans.

Whoa....this is amazing. You say it's flourishing? More than that I'd say. It has astounding growth.

Do you have a long growing season in Ontario?

That's a nice collection of herbs. I have a small herb garden going as well but I plan to put in some medicinal ones soon.

I made my own herb box this year for my patio. We are putting in two plots out back for next spring. So hopefully I can do the same as you! Are you just bringing yours inside for winter?

This is my first year with herbs, I still dont know what Im doing!

I really sympathize with you Rosemary, we just moved here two years ago. The loss of my previous garden was very hard for me. Starting with a bare lot in a new subdivision was daunting. The upside of it of course is going to a whole new set of local nurseries and poring through seed catalogs for my new garden. My garden is just now starting to feel like "mine" again. :)

I always love to hear about herb gardens, so thanks for sharing. I have a ton of tarragon and I'm not sure what to do with it,
Glad I found your blog,
