I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

Herb Garden

Also linking up with Favorite Things Friday at http://thehillsarelivin.blogspot.com/ Lots of fun projects over there!

Thanks to Jean for Hosting "Blommin Tuesday"
You can look at all the other gardeners at
One of my favorite things is my herb garden - nothing like being able to walk out the back door while I am cooking and snip off some fresh herbs to use!
Today I cleaned it out and got it ready for the summer! WOO HOO Here is the cullinary part of my herb garden. It is about 20 feet from the back door.

This is the plant marker - the idea is from the Martha Stewart website - it is from the ideas listed in the next post. It works great!
I have all the information I need for this plant. Here is our dog Sterling - he watches me work between naps!
I also found a bunch of plant markers today and shared them in the next post.


I just read this blog post from a garden party and would like to add the link here of cooking with herbs from Gatsby Gardens. http://gatsbysgardens.blogspot.com/

Your herb garden looks great and I love the plant marker! I'm working on putting some herbs in. I've been disappointed to learn thata many are annuals only. :-(
I want to pass on an award to you. Today I received the versatile blogger award and am passing it on. You may "pick it up" on my blog!
Have a sunny week!

I haven't had a true herb garden since I moved here 3 years ago; this year I'm working on add some to a bed that was made last year.
I love the plant marker idea! How clever; I may have to copy that.

I love herb gardens! I always plant basil and cilantro -- those are my two favs. Love the plant markers below too!

Dee said...

love your plant markers....I had some cute little copper plate ones that promptly fell apart!

Jean said...

Great ideas for plant markers. I never label and then go crazy trying to figure out what something is. lol! Jean

Bonnie said...

I just love all these types of labels. I alway have trouble with them. I can't wait to try some of these ideas.

Found your blog on the Saving Cents linky party. I enjoy gardening too. You'll have to stop by for a Latte' and check it out.

Happy to be your newest follower.

Oh Yay! Herbs. I was starting to think that I was the only one on Fertilizer Friday who grew anything besides flowers!

Thanks for visiting my blog, I would be honored to have you link me to your compost post. Thank you!
