Oh, Have I Planted My Herbs Late…

That's right, I didn't get around to planting my modest garden of herbs until today. I planted them in an adorable stone planter I scored at a yard sale for $1 about a month ago. It looks like a stone garden fence, with a gate in each side. It's divided into four sections, so I planted two of thyme (my all-time favorite herb), one of chives, and one of oregano. I'm looking forward to using the thyme fresh in everything, the chives on baked potatoes, and the oregano in tomato or pizza sauce. But oh, why did I have to plant so late? But on the plus side, maybe they will just be coming into harvest when my tomatoes are– tomatoes and fresh herbs are so good together. So maybe my accidental planning will actually work out to my benefit…
