Happy Tuesday! Well I finally got the herb garden in yesterday.
I wasn't sure that I would have the energy but just getting out there and playing on the dirt revived me.
(These pictures aren't all that good. The sun was really bright this morning when I took them.)
I planted the rosemary in the 4 corners to make a border for when everything else comes up again next year (LORD willin')
Everything planted is a perennial except the Basil. Hoping to get seed from the Basil this year to actually grow it myself next year.
Spearmint & Thyme at the back. I need to get more Thyme.
I also planted a border around the tomato plants using Marigolds. They are suppose to be a good bug deterrent.
Got to get more marigolds as well.
Silver Queen Corn. 2 weeks today.
Potatoes. Do you see that UGLY little bug? Got to work on getting some natural insecticide spray. Wouldn't you know that the bug would find the first potato plant that came up?
Also in the garden and and growing on the homestead:
Here is a video that I love listening to this time of the year. It gets me in the gardening mood. Such inspiration .
