Garden Tuesday – The Herb Garden

tarragon

Tarragon – I believe it’s time to make some infused oil!

Oregano

Oregano.  The herb garden thug.  Totally having it’s way with the sage. 

Chives

Guess who didn’t cut back the chive flowers and now has baby chives popping up everywhere?

I always knew there was a reason why I didn't love oregano...that frisky thing.

Looks like you're in herb heaven. Our oregano does the same thing and just has to be treated mean on occasion.

your garden is still going strong! mine is very crispy, mid 90s here still :-(

I've always wanted a herb garden :) I've tried a couple of times but ran into soil problems at both houses (this was while I was living with my parents). After I move to the US (which is soon) I'm going to give it another try :)

Oh and yes, my last attempt at a herb garden had the chives take over pretty much the entire plot lol! I used them in various things, but it was a very pushy plant!

Beautiful. Love tarragon and those little chive babies are adorable.

Marjie said...

Yeah, if I don't get my fat wrinkled rump out there and chop down those chives one last time, I'm going to be overrun next year, too.

Me and herbs are still trying to get along, the ones in the garden that is! Lovely shots, there is something so beautiful about herb gardens.

I only got around to planting basil this year. Herbs are so darn spendy in the stores. I love herb infused oils!

I like your herb garden. I can grow rosemary and marjoram out of the pot and it sticks around all year. My sage, mint and chives I have in pots. I just have to keep planting the basil! I love having fresh herbs all year!

Bonnie said...

Oh, I wish I had tarragon to make some vinegar. Mine is so small and puny and it's new. I love the herb garden.

Just beautiful.

Chives are my nemesis. My Mom can practically grow a thatched lawn of them. they grow so well up Mine that she forces a pot of them on every departing guest and neighbor. I keep planting and planting and planting and adding to my patch and every year I get a few Charlie Brown tufts. I add them to absolutely everything so it really drives me mad! next time I am going to steal some of her dirt to see if it helps. I have NEVER had them self propagate! Jealous.

Beautiful! I'll bet it smells amazing.

Funny to hear that oregano is such the aggressor. This is the first year ours has done that, and I was glad. I'll have to keep an eye on him next year....and keep him away from my sage! ;)

Your herb garden has me envious.
