Herb Garden

I've created some garden beds.  The first was across from the front door:

I decided to make this my herb bed.

The soil seemed a little flat for me, it was really dry.

I used the removalist paper and some fruit from the citrus trees.  I covered it with some chicken manure and then hay.

I planted the herbs I had in here.  Parsley, Corriander, lemon verbena, chives, rosemary, sage, perenial basil, sweet basil, pineapple sage.  I also put in a row of rocket at the right side.

What a year can do

We're packing boxes and ungardening at our current place with 26 days until we move.  I've been repotting plans I want to keep and Jan's been helping to neaten up the gardens we're leaving behind.   I've been rewarded time and time again for the efforts I put in when we moved in here.   Potatoes would pop up all around the place, we were going to be blessed with a massive crop of jeruselum artichokes this year too.

I've left a few plants in to see if I can get them to come up before we leave.  E.g. strawberries:


Many heads of garlic that I'll pull at the last minute:

Globe artichokes:

I had a parsnip go to seed and parsnips are coming up all around the garden:

We've improved soil so much that we've been blessed with good crops.  I've enjoyed seeing mushrooms and toadstools pop up all around the garden confirming the soil is healthy:


Bulbs and plants all around the place:

I hope we can do as well in such a short time at Widget Grove.
