Gardening check-in...the herb files!

So, in addition to our veggie garden that I am clearly enamored with right now (as you know if you read my last post...), I once again have my deck herb garden growing and flourishing and making the air around it smell oh so yummy!

Mmmmm....sage! One of my favorites! When I brush past it releasing its scent I immediately think of Thanksgiving and how I can't roast my turkey without lots of fresh sage!

 Wonderfully fragrant mint. All good Greeks have lots of mint!

 (r): Greek oregano
(l): Italian parsley
Greek and Italian...just like us!

Deliciously fragrant, aromatic, and so incredibly yummy sweet basil!!!

Sweet marjoram. Such a lovely scent and delicate taste. This is the first year I planted it. Can't wait to use it!

Not pictured: thyme, lavender, rosemary, and cilantro (which is giving me fits, again...grrr!).

Looks awesome!! Can you jar any of the herbs or preserve them so they don't spoil before you can use them?

I have problems with my cilantro, too. It gets all flowery and tall. I love your garden. I am really proud of my herbs this year!

Tanya said...

WOW! Looks awesome! I can't wait to be away from the city and have a house with a yard to plant a garden!
