Herbs & Tomatoes

I’ve been wishing for fresh herbs lately, but the weather’s been so cool and rainy I haven’t gotten anything going. I finally made it to the farmer’s market and got some herbs and tomato plants. Now if it would stop raining long enough to get them planted, and warm up enough to encourage them to grow, I’ll have my herb garden back and tomatoes for caprese salad. I’m starting with basil, thyme, chives, mint and parsley. I’ll most certainly succumb to more later, but this is a good start. I keep my rosemary going over the winter; it’s been outside for a couple of weeks.

I’m giving lavender another try. I’m told this one will be hardy and provide me with relaxing fragrance for years. Here’s hoping. I’ve tried them before and haven’t had much success, but this one looks different and is very fragrant already even in it’s tiny infancy.
