Herb Garden Plan
Snow on the ground, 4 degrees Fahrenheit outside, so what’s a body to do but… revisit the design an herb garden, which we will be planting in the spring. Adding 21 herbs we will be primarily focusing . Learning about their different soils, water, sun requirements and their different propagation methods. I wanted to incorporate many of the 21 herbs, but also incorporate others herbs and edibles in my design. After hours, upon hours of making graphs,( in order to match up soil, light, growing room, etc plants with others needing the same thing), I came up with the above plan. Eric (Comfrey Cottages Two) and I will be putting in the above design in at his gardens. This works out just lovely as I am across the road at my son Tommy’s house almost daily tending Dylan, so Comfrey Cottages Two is as convenient as my own gardens:) For anyone who hasn’t room to garden or keep bees, I highly recommend considering if you could do so at a friend or relatives home, that might be nearby. So, I am re-exploring the garden design. I spent a good bit of time yesterday getting some seeds ordered and will be looking for the plants of a few of them.
Earlier this year, Eric, my hubby and I went to Burlington, Iowa to the junior college. Once a month from April through September the Southeast Iowa pigeon club, hosts a large flea market kind of affair, on the college grounds. We love to go over as you never know what you will find! On one of our trips, we luckily found a little portable greenhouse for seed starting this year. Similar to the one in the link, only ours has a zipper. Now for the perfect place to put it…
Hugs to all who visit Comfrey Cottages
