I know it doesn't really look that impressive, does it? I wish we'd taken some before photos but basically this garden was an overgrown mess of rose bushes and weeds. A useless space. Seeing as we've kind of outgrown the herb garden we created a few years ago, we thought we'd make this space into something usable. It's actually quite a big area. So far we've planted parsley, rosemary, oregano, lemon thyme, thyme, coriander and mint seedlings. Basil will go in once the weather is warmer. I'm planning to throw some seeds in as well so the herbs will spread across. And I might even put in some spinach and rocket for winter. I think it will be easier to maintain here as well. Because it's right next to driveway I will be able to weed it on my way inside. Now to work out some way of keeping our free-ranging chooks from digging in it!
