Pull up a chair among the Thyme and Lavender.
I once dreamed of having a little greenhouse that I grew little pots of Herbs.
It’s good to dream.
Now, snap out of it…I have to weed and water!
Herbs is where my passion for gardening first started. I fell in love with the fragrant and tasty little plants growing in the greenhouse where I worked as a floral designer. I knew that someday I would tend an herb garden.
I keep a defined herb bed in the kitchen garden, but you will also find herbs tucked all around the garden, among the perennials, pond and Rabbit Run Cottage. Herbs bring bees and butterflies to the garden. Chocolate mint and thyme edge the garden paths releasing it’s fragrance when walking through the garden. Not to mention how much flavor herbs bring to the kitchen. If you have not grown herbs before, consider adding them to your garden this year!
When I was a child our family always had a small clump of chives growing somewhere in our garden or flower beds. I’m sure I didn’t know what an Herb was back then. I remember picking the flowers and the onion smell being left on my hands.
I don’t remember when I learned about the world of Herbs; but I knew I loved them, I wanted to grow them, I wanted to cook with them, I even dreamed of having a little Herb Garden Nursery.
While cutting these Herbs this morning, I realized that I grow Herbs, cook with Herbs, I even occasionally sell some Herb pots, best of all I share them with friends and family.
