OUR HERB GARDENS
One of our shady herb beds
Anise-Hyssop. This is one of the indredients in Peaceacre Peaceful Blend Herb Tea. Not only is it a wonderful tea herb, it attracts humingbirds and bees. Perfect!
Yarrow, Lambs-Ear, Catnip
These are just a few pictures of some of my favorite herbs. As you can see, I'm not into formal beds. I plant my herbs, to quote Paul McCartney, "here, there and everywhere..."
Green Beans (looks like they need thinning... I never did, though, and we had a bumper crop like you wouldn't believe!)
Working in the garden. In the front is a beautiful patch of boarge that self-sows like crazy everywhere, every year.
More green beans!
I put this arbor together using branches that were knocked down in an ice storm a couple of years ago. The innocent looking plant you see growing in profusion is called "Chia." A friend of mine gave me one tiny seedling. Chia seeds are an ancient food used for energy, endurance and well-being. But watch out! One seedling can take over an entire garden... Talk about energy!
Working to create a perrenial flower bed in the front yard. Our goal is to have this bed cover the entire front yard, to eliminate the need for mowing... This was my husband's idea!
I'm already thinking about next spring!
