Ok...this is our second try this spring with the herb beds. March was so warm, everything popped out of the ground and took off running! But, mother nature wasn't finished with her winter blessings...so many things got zapped pretty good.
It seems as if most things are going to bounce back on their own...we have had to cut back and replant a few. That's life on a farm....one day at a time.....
Chives, oregano, dill, thyme, and sage are all looking very good.
Rosemary and lavender looks iffy at the moment....except my little kitchen garden, everything there is beautiful and in excellent shape. So I am blessed!
Not too early to start working you soil...hopefully you have a nice big pile of compost to scatter around. Just work it into your garden soil and plant directly into the compost, best fertilizer you will ever use.
A friend sent me a Comfrey plant early last year, it was beautiful but never bloomed...well, it is now in bloom, and beautiful isn't the right description...it is so amazing...I planted it right by the compost pile, so what does that tell you?
In our vegetable garden we have tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, spinach and snow peas. We also have a family of 4...rabbits.....living in the field next to the garden...I suppose there will be some munching going on, they don't eat a lot and usually just the bottom leaves, so we will try to be generous and share...only if they don't get greedy!
I hope you have a Marvelous May and plant a garden...it's so fun!
