Garden Tuesday – The Fall Herb Bed


Herb bed

I thought you might be curious to see what my herb bed looks like in the fall.  Can you find the oregano, fennel, basil, lemon verbena, tarragon and rosemary?  And there is also a profusion of wild violets, which I don’t have the heart to pull out.

Here is from the other side.  In the lower left you can see that my garlic chive blossoms have gone to seed and and are spilling their fertile goodness everywhere.  Feel free to bookmark this page and point it out to me next spring when I am whining and moaning about garlic chives being everywehre.  You can see that my sage has pretty much called it quits, my fennel looks like a brown monster with weird tentacles, but my my rosemary is still going strong.

So, how about you?  How is your garden doing?

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

    Look at it all — WOW! Now just cut great handfuls of the stuff and hang it in a cool dry place (basement, closet) to dry — you’ll be so happy over the winter.

    Lookin’ good, Pam. I don’t have a herb bed, but always wanted to. I know one thing, I am not a huge fan of all this basil I have. I won’t be entering Garden Tuesday this week, as I have company and have been slack on my blogging. I hope basil doesn’t come back year after year!!!

    I can’t believe I’m the only linker. My garden is a mess this year. Too much stuff to do and not enough cooperation. Maybe next year I’ll add more herbs.

    It still looks great!We’ve started the daunting task of putting many of the beds to bed:( We make them grow all spring and summer.. to monstrous proportions this yr..and then chop away~

    We have started pulling bunches of ours and letting them dry upside down. Then we’ll have “fresh dry herbs” probably through January.
