* herb bed

Posted on April 29th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.


Mark built another raised bed, this one half the size of the other one.  I’m going to plant herbs in it.  It sounds like some of them are kind of invasive, so it seems like a good idea to give them a separate bed.  Here it is next to its neighbor.

You can see some of my sprouts growing in the vegetable bed.  The radishes are the cutest.

My fennel sprouts are happily growing away behind them.  I think there’s also a weed back far right, but I haven’t decided yet.  Also growing: peas (so big it’s time to thin them and build a trellis!), beets, lettuce mix (need to thin those too), and mustard.  My indoor starts are all starting nicely too, and the window box nasturtiums grew like 6 inches while I was away last weekend.

    your beds look great! i’ve followed your blog for awhile for craft and was excited to see your garden! I’m an avid gardener and crafter…when i have the time. Most of your herbs should be fine but beware of the mint! it will take over and spread its legs everywhere…but it is lovely! I learned that one too late.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
