I know some of you in the South have already started planting your gardens or, at the very least, put out a couple of pots on the patio!
Every year I pore over nursery catalogs, but I plant less and less as the years pass. This year I will do better – I promise!
I keep thinking that it would be great to have raised beds, but I just don’t have the strength anymore to do the digging, construction and hauling that will require. I’m much more of a casual gardener than a serious one, and even though the various contraptions available to home gardeners for planting their veggies and herbs, I have yet to commit to a purchase. This one looks nice, but pricey:
I love, and will use, sage, thyme, basil, marjoram, rosemary, and parsley. I may even just buy the plants, rather than raising them from seed (or both).
The beauty of gardening, and the lovely summer season, is that we can tailor our garden to our budget, ability, needs, and desires.
What kind of garden do you have, and what are you planting this year?
