I love my gardens. I can get lost in my gardens.
This is my Herb Garden
I love to grow herbs more then anything else. They are very forgiving. They don’t seem to require a lot of care. Perfect for me. The best part about growing herbs is that I can use them for everything. From Teas to cooking and baking to feeding my chickens and keeping their coop smelling great! I think my favorite herb right now is my Comfrey. It works wonders in my compost bin and my chickens love it. It’s a very hardy perennial that is rich in protein and minerals.
Another favorite herb of mine is my Lovage plant. It was given to me years ago by my sister and I have moved it with me to 3 different homes. I think we have both finally made our last move, finding our place in the garden. Lovage is very similar to celery so I use it the same way in my soups and stews.
Of course no proper herb garden would be complete without the addition of these herbs:
Gotta have Spearmint for those Mojitos!!
And of course my little Garden Gnome
Cat Mint a true favorite of Honey Bees, Hummingbirds and Swiss Mt. Dogs!!
Just a few of my herbs ready to be put around the house
I hope you all enjoyed your walk through my Herb Garden. I just wish you could all smell how wonderful they are!
