Well the weather has been so nice that I took off work on Wed. and put in my raise herb garden. It looks gorgeous. I am embarrassed at how many weeds had grown into the bed. I didn't realize that it was that bad until I started digging. I had a wheelbarrow full of weeds and grass, etc. Food for the compost pile . Anyway, after I got it cleared I put up this border I got at lowes, it's a piece of black plastic with halfed garden logs stapled to it so it looks pretty nice. It ended up being 3' x 12'. I had plants ready to go in so I went a head and planted them. Basil Thyme Oregano (some new and some old that I just moved in the bed) Chives Marjoram Sage. Then I planted seed : Dill Parsley Lavendar. Can you direct plant lavendar? I wasn't sure but thought I would give it a try. I also have lemon basil and garlic chives that I am hardening to plant. I will probably wait until after Monday now because it is going to bet really cold on Monday night. They are calling for 28 degrees. When I planted them they were calling for 38 so I thought ok, no worries. Now I have to come up with a plan or I will loose my basil and marjoram.
