I tend to grow herbs in pots on my deck. Since I live in a woods, sunlight is not always there.
I brought some pots in last fall. I still have basil, rosemary, and chives growing. Thyme died out.
Never planted parsley, as I could not find the flat-leaf kind.
I have enough sage I dried from a year or so back that I won’t need any for a while.
I may try that this year. I’ve got a garden that runs along the back of the kitchen and dining room (about 35 feet long and 4 feet wide). Last year I tried to plant pumpkins there, but they really didn’t thrive. It would be a good place to do a pot garden of herbs, spices and such. I’ve got a lot of seed I can start for things like that too. Maybe I’ll drag out the cold frames tomorrow and set them up. That’d be a good way to harden them once the sprout.
Post the recipe if you get it. I usually use jar stuff, but it would be fun to make.
I don’t do many vegetables anymore. Unc’s parents have a HUGE garden and lots of overflow. I do mostly perennials and herbs. I used to do vegetables in the terraced garden in the front, but I don’t have much time in the summer now that I work 12 months instead of 9. Just keeping up with the weeds is a chore.
Unc eliminated the grass in my front yard, so I have boxes and paths. All perennials and herbs. They are wonderful and are so calming after a long day at work.
Even that doesn’t work on some of my weeds. Unc paved my paths between my garden boxes. Those stubborn weeds cracked through the cement and stones. Roundup helps, but they still come back in a couple weeks - seemingly stronger and more prolific than ever!
Mine is still covered in mulch. We could still get snow, so I resisted the urge to rake it this weekend (unseasonable 60 degrees yesterday). With being in CA for the next couple weeks, I don’t want those tender spring bulbs to come up too soon when I can’t protect them.
