Windowsill Herb Garden

Just a couple of weeks left until my wee windowsill herb garden is transferred outdoors! I’ve been working hard to tidy up and make room for them all in the backyard, but in the meantime I thought I’d post a couple of updated indoor photos to let you in on their progress to date.

As always, clicking on each photo will take you to the larger version on Flickr.

The sage is really going strong! Both the sage and the thyme were planted later than everything else, but they’re both catching up nicely, I think.


05-14-2012 Chives

Mmmm, chives. I tasted one the other day and can’t wait until they’ve grown enough for me to chop up a bunch in some scrambled eggs!

Thyme, Oregano, Parsley, and Sweet Basil

I thought I’d do a grouped photo this time rather than separate each pot, just to give you an idea of how lovely and green they all look together. Every time I see them, along with the sage and chives beside them, I feel happy and proud and, somehow, at peace.

Gardening is magical! I’m so glad I started this new hobby.

So, how is your garden growing?
