Garden 2010

Today I finally finished planting my herbs. When I first bought them, I didn't buy enough pots or potting soil. I made many trips to the store for more pots, then more trips for more soil. Then, of course, there was the problem of space in the kitchen because it was too windy to put the plants outside.

Because I bought so many, I forgot about three and two died. I don't feel too badly about one of the dead plants. I don't know why I bought it. I don't have much luck with dill. I now have basil, oregano, tarragon, coriander, marjoram, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. I also bought a strawberry plant that had lots of blossoms and a few berries. One of them was ripe the other day. It was wonderfully juicy and delicious. Hope I get more.

I planted three rose bushes in the ground and now know why I prefer container gardening. My back as so sore, and then there is the problem of getting up after kneeling on the ground for several minutes.

Now all I need is lots of sun and to remember to water every day.
