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!
