strawberries!

at last, the strawberry patch bears fruit! i sliced them up and threw them on some lettuce/spinach with capers and feta – yum.

i’m still pretty new to this whole gardening thing, but it always amazes me how MUCH things can grow in such a short time. If I was like the fennel, I figure I’d be about 17 feet tall by now.

It wasn’t even supposed to be in the herb garden at all – it somehow magically transported itself from the garden at the back with all the work that went on. Anyways, here are the herbs when I planted them:

Here are the herbs about a month ago:

Here are the herbs yesterday.

And finally, here is the luscious peony that is perfuming my kitchen.

    Oh, I love your herb garden, that is so beautiful. Any plans to replant your entire front lawn with edibles? You’ve got the touch!!

    Thank you! My front yard plans are still in the planning stage – there’s a whole bunch of grass to dig up first. Maybe i could square-foot-garden the whole lawn, one foot at a time?

    OMG!!! I LOVE YOUR herb garden!!! those pictures were def exciting…Are you all organic? if not which synthetics do you use? regardless, the green walls and that garden list of all the edibles (yum yum) you grew is just amazing. one day, i have a dream, that i will be able to get the right knack for gardening. so far, i have luck with small herbs, cilantro, mint, chamomile and the like because its not hard to plan for them and they pretty much grow themselves.

    being the southern hemisphere tho i have noticed that tomatoes pretty much grow more than anything else i have planted. slugs seem to get the best of the rest and dreaded leaf miner has taken over a lot of my leafy greens 😦

    it was my first time trying sage and even that is getting eaten by some type of nibbler (seems like a beetle, rather than a slug, but could be both)…well, just wanted to tell you, i stopped in to see the chamomile article and found the rest breath-taking…::sigh::
    congrats on a beautiful harvest!
