It was then that We Decided the Garden was Too Big....

Our very large garden...after he plowed we realized how big it was-Vickie's Kitchen and Garden


After he plowed it we kept on looking at it and were amazed how big the garden actually was. We moved the strawberry plants that used to be in the back sometime in the last year and build up the soil so it wouldn't be so wet. Then we excitedly decided to grow more vegetables there. Wow, we said, more garden space.  What were we thinking?   

The garden already supplies us with enough vegetables to eat, can, and giveaway why on earth did we think we need more?   We might have been a tad greedy.

Thoughts ran through our heads for a day or two about what to do with the space back there......columnar trees, berry bushes, and someone even mentioned grass....the nerve!

Then a herb garden came to mind and took off!



The Herb Garden that now sits at the back of the garden



I used the bricks from Mom's house to border the herb garden.   I planted Lavender on each end.  In the middle I planted sage, thyme, rosemary, lemon grass, and calendula.

The design is my husbands.  At first I had the bricks going in and out of the plants in what I thought looked like a English garden.  In the end though it just ended up looking like a crop circle. I think the 90 degree heat must have got to me.

It's been awhile since I've had a herb garden and I can't wait for it to grow!

Do you have a herb garden?
