    Starting Small

    This spring I'm starting small, but I'm starting!  I started reading about herbs and gathering books on the subject this past year.   I live in an apartment, but I have a patio and I'm going to do a container garden with a few interesting herbs.   I'm...

    Blue Black Thumb

    No, I can't grow anything! I've tried and tried, but I only kill things. I would love to grow an herb garden. I use herbs for all sorts of things including their medicinal and magickal properties. I am great at drying them, but I really wish I could grow them too.

    Every Year

    When I was courting my sweetie, many years ago, she had bought flowers to plant outside and lots of herbs.  I wanted to spend time with her so I came over to her place to help her plant flowers.  It took all day (actually two days, it was over a weekend).  I never planted so...

    I used to have a big one

    when I had a garden but now I live in an Upstairs flat and all I can do is to have a few herbs on the window sill. Herbs are essential for good cooking

    Mint!

    As much as I like other herbs, such as rosemary, basil, thyme, etc. my favorite is mint. Yes, I know it has a vicious habit of taking over herb gardens, but I can't bring myself to mind too much. Mint tea is my favorite and I have wonderful memories of going outside to...

    My First Herb!

    I just planted my first herb!  I bought a nice fragrant rosemary plant and put it in a big pot on my porch this afternoon.  It smells wonderful.  I'm hoping it will be a cute little "tree" by Christmas. Next is going to be mint.  And there is a...
