Since we installed the greenhouse in the middle of the herb garden last fall, the former layout of the garden was completely off center. This weekend, we finally too some time to re-do the herb garden paths so they actually lead to the greenhouse door. It took quite some digging and moving dirt, but the end result was worth it! We now have much broader paths to reach the greenhouse, and still plenty of space for herbs.
By the way, the very cold winter did kill some of the more tender herbs, like the large rosemary we had for three years. But we already planted new rosemary, and replenished the parsley (curly and flat).
We also added the old tractor part as “yard art” to the herb garden. We found this in one of our fence rows during spring cleaning and had to move it with the tractor – since it is so heavy. It sort of resembles an over sized bundt cake pan! We placed it on an old tree stump and will fill it with colorful summer flowers once it gets warmer!
