Herb Garden

Our first landscaping project was 11  years ago …. 4 raised beds with an arbor attaching.  This was our vegetable garden for several years.  Now that we have our BIG GARDEN of 28 raised beds these 4 have become the herb garden.

Of course one of the first items we planted was chocolate mint.  I love that it’s a perennial.  So many herbs are.  Sage is another favorite.

One of my favorite blogs:  Parisienne Farmgirl has an excellent Potager Series. I am ready to add more mulch, some flowers and beautify this simple space! So far this year I’ve added a dwarf alberta spruce for some height and winter color to the center of each bed.

We also added 3 baby goldfish to our ornamental pond next to the Herb Garden.  When I went to look for them this morning I spotted Mr. Bullfrog.  I sure hope he didn’t eat our new friends.

What’s your favorite herb?  Do you have a special space for them or include them in your vegetable garden?  I thought this was a cute idea.  Thank you Pinterest!  Happy planting!
