Thyme to Garden ~ Potting Table and Herb Garden


















Herb Gardening

It has been the hottest summer on record.....  since the 1930's.
Gardening was tough going this year.
I've always wanted to have an herb garden.  I cook a lot and use lots of veggies and fresh herbs.  I decided to start my own herb garden.  I planted most of them in pots.  
For the most part.....  they did well.  
I planted several common herbs.... basil, sage, parsley and dill.
A friend of mine gave me a few "mint" plants.  They grew very well in both the garden and planters.  The tiny blooms are so pretty and when you pinch off a bit the smell is wonderful!
I shared the potting shed my hubby built a few posts ago.  I was finally able to get a good picture of the hand stenciled doors.  I painted and hung lattice as a back drop for the shelving.  I was able to display my collection of vintage planters and other garden themed antiques.  Underneath (behind my pretty hand painted doors) I'm able to store away unused pots, potting soil, tools. etc.  Everything is neat and organized.
I purchased the handmade herb markers on Etsy.
