Growing The Herbs, Part II



A couple of weeks ago, I posted a video of the growing room we set up in our carriage house. This room was the first step for us in growing our own herbs from seed for this year's growing season. Yesterday, we went to step two. We moved the plants out into the sunshine on our patio for the length of the day and then I took them over to my parent's house where they will bask in the warmth and sunlight of their sun room. Once Mother Nature cooperates with us, we'll put them in the ground and watch anxiously as they reach for the sun and we clip them for dinner service. Just as a point of reference here is a little teaser of the herbs and plants we have started.... italian parsley, chervil, five types of basil, rue, cutting celery, chives, sorrel, borage, and so on.... Keep crossing you fingers for warmer weather!!!!

It's so awesome that you started your herbs! We're crazy about herbs too and grow as many as our garden plots can handle. We've also got a couple new ones for us this spring, including Shiso leaf, lettuce leaf basil, and of course, TONS of viet herbs!
So glad we found you through Rhulman and thanks for sharing your love and knowledge of food.
