Planting My Herb Garden
Because I can't crouch or kneel or stoop due to physical limitations, hubs set up sturdy plastic shelves for me last year and I did my herbs in window boxes on the shelves. It worked great, so this year I bought more.
When they have grown and spread, I'll harvest them in the fall and dry them inside the house on drying racks. Parsley can't be dried but I'll put it in ice cube trays to freeze in small blocks.
Meantime I'll be enjoying my fresh herbs all summer long in various recipes! Then in the late winter I'll still have fresh sage, thyme and marjoram for the turkey at Christmas. Yum!
I am not likely to use the mint but I wanted to experiment with making mint tea
If I send my son out for thyme he's as apt to return with a handful of basil leaves. So hopefully the white labels will solve that little problem.
Here's an interesting book on growing herbs for anyone interested in starting. It's a great way to enjoy fresh tastes all year long and they smell wonderful when drying inside in the winter.
