    Herb Garden...pics

    For the last few years I have been planting a few herb. If you go to buy fresh herbs they cost a fortune, same goes for dry herbs. Unless you buy those ones in the dollar store and they are so old they lost thier taste.

    This year I figured I'd go big time since I have been successful in the past.
    Fresh Herbs are great in the summer in potato, maccroni and green salades. Homemade salsa. In the fall I cut them all and hang them upside down to dry.
    Around Jan. I crush up the dry herbs and jar them.

    All winter we have free herbs in soups, pot roast, bread and sauces.

    If I am going to waste time in a garden I want something that I can eat.

    Benncool,

    I hope that your owl is for decoration only. If it is there to scare rabbits, squirrels and other animals then you wasted your ten bucks.

    Soil right next to the siding is an invitation for termites.

    Otherwise your herb garden looks nice. I am planning to start my own garden next year. So far I have planted some tomatoes and cucumbers. It is fun to watch things grow, especially those that you planted.

    .
    The picture does make it look that way I admit. But the building is on a 4" Slab. The dirt line is at the bottom of the slab.

    I thought you were going to show us your marijuana crop.
