I like seeing the gardens as they fill in.....so keep the pics coming.
By the way Lisa...we are not using the comment section on this blog...just make a post of any comment you want to leave as I am the only one that gets the notice that there is a comment and some may get lost....okay dokie....!!!
Okay girls time for some pics of your gardens.... Judy
And the final pic for now is my monster rosemary (which, by the way, has been recently pruned back but still needs more done!). I think this is the happiest rosemary plant I've ever seen. And my customers agree ~ they are always amazed that it's a rosemary bush & that huge! I'll never forget last year when we sold herbs (which we had purchased from a local farmer), every customer who bought a rosemary bush wanted to know if it would grow to be like mine! :smiles:

Herbal Bouquets with mint...sage....lemon balm and oregano.....coming soon.....woohoo!!!
Sweet Annie ANYONE? I have lots! I planted a few plants last summer and now look what I have. I need to thin them out and hopefully transplant some to other areas in the garden.

firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send your invite to you....Can't wait for you to post...believe me ....I am a beginner and hope to learn some good stuff from all of us sharing.... and a new herb garden is going to be so much fun....especially at your new olde house !!Fondly, Judy
Now it needs to be thinned out and some new herbs planted....maybe tomorrow if the weather stays nice. I did cut the "catmint" today as I sold a vintage ticking sack that had "catmint" embroidered on it...so I cut the catmint for the customer to hang and dry to add to her sack...(it was a really cool sack...might have to make another one...) I want to plant some Lady's Mantle as the flowers are so very pretty and delicate but I forgot to pick some up when I got the herbs....oh shucks....I just might have to go back to those greenhouses.....what a shame....!!!
I am anxious to see pictures of your gardens girls....and pray tell what are you up to....???

I have fun doing the outside...I never know what I will have to work with as the inventory changes all the time....and then of course the weather plays a big part....one day at a time seems to be the motto lately....we are expected to get two more days of rain but Wed. is suppose to be nice....we shall see !! I will be "quacking" before this week is over I am sure.
Tomorrow I will set up the inside of the store for the herbal goodies we will be serving....Tuesday morn we pick up our herbs - and set up the outside....and then I have all the goodies to make...that is really a fun part - again I get to play "wannabee tea room owner"....The gardens are growing nicely....my chives at home are perfect for the Radish and Chive Spread I will make - and my olde rosemary plant is ready for a trimming to make the Rosemary Tea Cooler. I will make Lavender Beeskep Cupcakes with my sugared Johnnies as decoration. ( I use olde aluminum jello molds for the cupcakes and they look just like little beeskeps!) I will most certainly post pictures. Lavender Egg Salad tea sandwiches will be a first this year....gosh I hope they are good.
Does anyone have a good herbal recipe they want to share with me??
