My New Herb Garden

My selection of herbs

I have always wanted my very own herb garden.  I waste so many herbs when I buy a bunch from the supermarket for a recipe and then use a few sprigs and toss the rest.

Our cat Panini checking out the new herbage!

Warning Panini about my herbs - "Do Not Touch!"

Watering the soil. It was such a hot day that I set myself up in the shade and did my watering from there. I watered before I planted so that the soil compacted first.

Planting my baby herbs - can't wait to eat!

The herbs that I planted: baby spinach, cos lettuce, mix lettuce, chives, spring onion, basil, thyme, oregano, parsley.  I want to go and get some coriander and rosemary, but the shop had run out (apparently this weekend was the weekend for planting a herb garden).  In a separate tub I planted mint (which needs to be all on its own as it likes to spread), chillies and strawberries.

    I love herb gardens! I live in a small unit and would love to plant some herbs in pots. I have to work out which ones can handle the full sun? Does anyone have any suggestions?
