garden 2012 progress... [Apr. 18th, 2012|09:02 pm]

This morning I assembled two 2'x2' raised beds for some herbs. I snagged Dad for a trip to Vinland Valley Nursery because I like their herb selection better, came home with 8 plants. In back I put four varieties of basil (including lime basil, purple basil, large Italian leaf, and some other), in front three mints (including chocolate mint) and pineapple sage.

The small raised beds are pretty cool, but in a year or two I'd like to make a fancier herb bed that has a couple different levels and a unique shape, possibly an L shape that goes around the edge of the patio. That will require more lumber and planning, including leveling a bit around the patio. I think that is definitely a plan for next year. Or this summer if I have a coupon for lumber at Home Depot.
