Decided toplant my herbs in a small bed instead of pots. Too much work during the heat of summer. My pots were sitting on loose set pavers in full sun. Took the pavers out and used old bricks to edge the bed. I thought I had enough compost left. Should have done my math first. I had to add a couple of 2 cubic foot bags of soil to the mix. I did thiis yesterday. Took the herbs out of the pots and planted in my pretty new bed. It STORMED last night! Big lightening and thunder, power went out for about 3 hours, 2" of rain! I walk out this morning Looks like I am going to need another couple of bags of soil. It really got compacted.
I have a rosemary, sage, thyme, 3 dill, 4 basil (more seedlings in pots - I use lots of basil), oregano, parsley and cilantro. I left the parsley and cilantro in pots so I can move them out of the full sun when it gets too warm. I want to add fennel and thinking about celery root. Oh and lavender. Rainbow inspired me with her lavender biscotti recipe.
