The Hopeful Gardener Enjoys Herbs

June 30, 2011

It’s been a while since I posted a garden update, but my little herb garden is doing really well. Thankfully, the summer rains have helped and are keeping everything growing and tasting delicious. I snapped the following picture on my phone this morning on the way out the door.

Although the basil was cut back a lot, it is now taking over the space where the cherry tomato used to be. The oregano is going to town, and the chives are quite prolific.

Later in the week I’m planning on getting a new container and some tomato plants and cilantro. Yes, it flies against conventional wisdom to plant tomatoes in Central Florida in July because of the heat, but it was successful last year in spite of my being warned it wouldn’t work, so I’m going to give it another try. Be on the lookout for some updates!
