Can't help myself

Gotta share my herbs, they aren't ready for harvest yet.
In the back, St Johns Wort, then the Ginger and in front the Turmeric.
I am about to harvest the thyme, basil, sage and rosemary.

Looks awesome! 馃榾 Good job man鈥鈥檝e also grown herbs and my ginger is thriving.
@ShadowWorker How nice! You can transfer it to a bigger pot coz they鈥檙e pretty rugged like that. 馃槆

I love using their leaves in my cooking from time to time.

@Vivaci yup, that the plan. And divide them for more plants...plus using the root...rhizomes. I've never used the leaves...I'll try them out.
Happy gardening 馃懆鈥嶐煂 馃挏@ShadowWorker
I think I'm jealous! I used to grow garlic chives, regular chives, oregano, and sage when I had a tiny kitchen garden years ago.

@4meAndyou yup...I've got Chives, Oregano, Lemon balm, catnip, mints too.
Get a sunny window and grow some fresh ..spices! Good for the health and soul.
Hi I use a trug or raised vegetable planter. Gives you space without taking up to much room, but looking good.

Thanks for reminding me; I want to try growing ginger again. It keeps sprouting in the kitchen.
But - St John's Wort? I rue(!) the day I planted it.... What a thug! It's well on its way to taking over the whole yard.

@Stereoguy Thank ya very much! 馃槉
It looks like you have more plants than me. lol
I have a in ground garden area with two types of chives, thyme, sage, rosemary and two types of mint... a few mint plants in containers and basil.
I haven't mastered garlic or ginger yet! lol
@SW-User we have ginger growing for the first time and also wasabi.
ShadowWorker61-69, F
@SW-User wish we could sit down with coffee and talk shop...gardening and plants. Would love it!
@ShadowWorker Same here! This is the kind of stuff I miss on sites! We seem to share the same interests and enthusiasm for it all. :)
