<— FOUR WEEKS
IN THE SOIL —>
It’s been exactly four weeks since I planted my recession herb garden and I’m pleased to report that my mint, sage and rosemary, are getting much bigger. The mint is starting to take over, as readers cautioned it would, so tonight I may pluck a few leaves to make mojitos!
I water the herbs every 3-4 days and they get a good dose of sun on our deck. I took the picture on the left this morning. The one on the right is the day I planted them. How the little guys have grown!
Since my first attempt at recession gardening is going well I’d like to expand. What do you suggest I plant?
I’d like something that grows well in pots (I don’t have a yard, sadly) and that is edible, of course. Thanks for your suggestions!
Another garden tip:
It’s time to plant eggplant, which requires a long warm season, says Lowe’s Learn2Grow newsletter. “No matter what type you choose, eggplant requires a long warm season – and now is the time to plant!”
