Herb Garden

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

I am super excited about the herbs planted in the little garden in my back yard. I mainly lived in apartments in New York and never had space to have a garden of any sort. But now I have some space and decided to section off an area to grow fresh herbs.

This was supposed to be my personal project but The Hubs some how took over and purchased and planted everything himself. Check it out.

Lavender grows well here in New Mexico and I always enjoy going to the lavender farm and festival during harvest. This season I’ll be able to make lavender oil using lavender from my own garden! How cool is that?!

Funny, at this stage, the plant doesn’t look very much like lavender to me.

Two types of Rosemary. I don’t know the difference. The Hubs took over. They look the same to me. Maybe I’ll test the difference with my homemade oil.

The thyme oil I make tastes the best. I use thyme oil on my hair too but mainly I like to eat it.
