It was a difficult spring, now it is a hot summer. I decided to make my herb garden an inside garden – which I hope will provide me with fresh herbs all winter. Other advantages include not having to be out watering the pots twice per day with the heat sucking up all the water, and no bugs.
Speaking of bugs, by the way, I took a dvd out of the non-functional dvd player Dad bought long ago on ebay. There’s another ebay dvd player tucked in the closet and maybe someday I’ll try hooking it up. But anyway, the dvd had some kind of egg sac on it and webby stuff stuck to it. Spider living inside the dead dvd player? Is that why it’s dead?
Back to the herbs, I’ve got thyme, boxwood basil, traditional basil and sage planted. I have a knob of ginger, which is supposed to be easy to grow, currently soaking in water. I hope to dig up the oregano from outside but if that doesn’t work, I’ll plant some from seed. Also chives. I need to get grow-light bulbs. Where I have it gets a little more light in the winter and I suppose I could move them to the floor by the sliding glass door but I rather like having them up where it’ll be easy for me to cut some fresh herbs for cooking.
