My herb garden

Back in the spring I was browsing around on Pinterest, which I love.  (http://pinterest.com/)  Pinterest is an online pin board where you can organize and share things you love.  I digress, sorry!!

 

On Pinterest I found this neat way to grow herbs on a wall.  I have a wonderful friend that has a woodworking shop and he made me some pot holders.  I ordered the herb seeds that I use and love.  I cleaned up the insides of 12 clay pots and filled them with dirt and planted my seeds.  When they started sprouting I hung them on the coal house on the farm and now I have little seedlings growing quickly on  a wall and the chickens can’t get to them. (Chickens love to dig up flower and vegetable gardens.)  Here’s the beginnings and I’ll post again before and when they’re harvested.  The pots have marjoram, lime basil, sage, garlic chives, lemon basil, oregano, sweet basil, Italian basil, stevia, parsley, cilantro and catnip for the kitties.
