It was time to plant our herb garden for the season and this year I decided to shake things up a bit. I usually plant them in three hanging planters that my dad built (and I refinished), however they didn’t always thrive quite as well as I’d hoped. The herbs always grew, but didn’t always regenerate as fast as we’d like, which had us purchasing fresh herbs at the grocery store again from time-to-time (kind of defeats the purpose right)!?
Anyway, last year there was one sage plant still alive come Spring so I took it out and put it in our large garden bed ‘just because’. Well, it went crazy and grew, and grew, and grew! So, a seed was planted (pun intended). This year I thought I’d put the herb garden into my existing large garden bed and see what happened.
Here is how the garden looked in it’s current state a few days ago (not the nicest weather lately as you can see).
