My herbal garden

When I was starting my garden, I decided that I will have plants that not only look good but lot of edible ones as well.

I have drawn up a list of medicinal and aromatic plants that I want to have in my garden. So far, I have spearmint (Mentha spicata), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), parsley (Petroselinum crispum), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and basil (Ocimum basilicum).

My tomatoes are doing really well and it looks like I won't be buying any for quite sometime.

It looks like 'green fingers' does run in the family.

BTW, this is my Green Thumb Sunday post.

Hey - I'm envious! I can never grow those Lavender til I move to down under. I tried smuggling once to MY but it died after 3 months :(

:) Wow that looks like a wonderful garden . I'm afraid to try grow n e vegies , my thumb isn't green .
I've opted for a pebble stone garden no plants :( . actually i was really sick for serveral weeks and all my plants died .Unfortunatly i couldn't do much at all and was on bed rest for weeks.
Maybe in a few weeks i'l be able to garden :) .

Thanks Sweetspirits. It did take me a lot of effort in the beginning but now all I do is a bit of weeding and watering the plants. Do post up some pics when you start your garden.
