The Garden

I have increased my herb garden size. It now includes more parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Further to this, I have curry plant, coriander, and not a few other herbs. If you need any and live nearby, pop around and raid my garden.

The herb garden is not the only new and exciting development in my life. I also have ripped out the hideous shrubs which were the feature of the oldest section of the retaining wall, and replaced them with pansies. Some very pretty pansies too.

And as if this wasn't enough, I also have three fruit shrubs/trees/vines. As well as my two grapevine plants (kindly given by Allan's grandfather), I have bought an orangeberry shrub (surprisingly enough like a blackberry, only orange), a passionfruit vine, and a thornless blackberry bush. Bring on harvest time I say!

Gardens are cool.

  • May be doing winter type veges here but for now will admire the weeds around the place. Turns out that there actually is real grass under there after all. Only took loads of weed killer and me attempting to clear it all out for it to make a comeback.

    Good winter veges, so I'm told, are cabbage, lettuce, onions, peas, broccoli and such types.

  • Finally long winter ends, and herbs of my garden will grow up from now. This year, what kind of herbs shall I plant? What kind of herbs do you like best?

  • Hey Scotty - when you're in your herb garden, with your parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme do you sing "scarborough fair"? i think it would make the herbs grow better if you did that
