Early Herbs

So I harvested my  first batch of chives yesterday.  I had two BIG bunches.  I love fresh herbs and I love growing them.  I was a little late with this first batch of chives and they had already flowered.  I hate wasting anything so I pulled out all the flowers and buds and filled two vases.  My daughter told me I couldn’t keep them in the house because it would smell like onions and that wouldn’t be good.  Psssh, what does she know.  At any  rate, the vases are outside on my  deck  and they look great! The picture in the middle doesn’t begin to show how much is actually there. That bucket is a good 10” deep and 14” across.  That’s a lot of chives!

I also planted some of the herbs that I started from seed.  Mostly tarragon and Greek oregano now with some sage and rosemary.

More little plants are waiting to be planted as soon as I have time.  I have also been planting some flowers around, as well as giving some away. More to come on that in another post.

Happy Gardening,
