Herbs that survived our non-winter

Post  Banned Member on 4/2/2017, 3:46 pm

My wife does not have much work to do with her herb garden, because almost all the herbs from last year survived our non-winter.  We still have oregano, sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, parsley, everything but the basil.

Here are some pictures of what is already outgrowing their squares.  We removed the grids on this one, because she landscaped in circular patterns on a 6 x 3 raised bed.  But it is growing in Mel's Mix and obviously doing quite well.  That is leaf mulch in the bed.  The oak trees did the work on their own.  My wife has not yet begun to work in the garden this Spring.

This is a different oregano--it is spicy hot like cayenne with a deep oregano taste.  I love it in steamed vegetables.

This is horseradish coming up.  We have had it here in this square since the first year we moved to our current house in the 1980's.  Again, no work has been done in this square yet, so it is a bit in need of some work.  You aren't supposed to harvest horseradish this time or year, but we need a good chunk for next week, so it will be picked and grated next Monday.

And finally, this isn't part of our garden at all.  This is free, volunteer romaine lettuce in the middle of our backyard.  Seeds must have been spilled there or maybe some of last year's romaine lettuce went to seed, and the wind carried it about 25 feet.  I covered it with tomato cages to keep the deer away and to remember where it is.  We have 5 total free lettuce plants.

That looks great. My Sage, Oregano and Lemon Thyme have come back too.

How lucky are you to have self mulching beds!
Perhaps I should leave the leaves in my beds as mulch, but I like the clean look without them.
