Instead of growing the normal vegetables this summer (peppers, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash), we decide instead to turn the entire garden into an herb garden. I’m thrilled! I spend so much time and money shopping for all my fresh herbs, but now, I can just lean into my backyard garden and pluck what I need.
Off we went to Lowes Memorial Day Sale where herb plants were on sale! My oldest daughter and I enjoyed picking out two sweet basil plants, purple basil, dill, lemon thyme, German thyme, two curly parsley plants, dill, two garlic chive plants, two hearty cilantro plants, one already blooming lavender plant, and a rather large rosemary bush. Oh, the cooking I will do!
I love this new season of growing things.
