Whilst I was planning my vegetable garden, I also had hopes to put in a small herb garden. I did plant cilantro, parsley, and basil in the veggie garden, but that just wasn’t going to be enough herbs for me.
First, I had to think about where to put my herbs. I don’t have many places that are appropriate. Next to the rabbit barn seemed like a good spot though. The southwest corner was begging to be planted. First, though, I had to put some mulch around the comfrey plants. Not only are the comfrey pretty, they are a good plant to have around for rabbit stomach ailments. So, the comfrey now have a nice bed of mulch around them.
Next I had to plan which herbs would go over here. I chose lavender, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. I had some seeds from last year too, so I planted celosia (cockscomb) in between the larger plants. Then I decided to toss some carrot seeds in the front. I like to make the rabbits dance. How can you make a rabbit dance, you ask? Wave some carrot leaves in the air. So the carrots are just to tease the rabbits.
Still, I think the area is coming together nicely. 🙂
