This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

parsely, sage, rosemary and thyme

parsley sage rosemary and thyme 052

These are the herbs I picked from my garden this weekend. Really nice on our grilled winter squash and roast pork dinner.

I have a devil of a time growning rosemary. Any tips?

I'm so unbelievably jealous! I live in Alberta, Canada, so I am not expecting herbs in the garden until about the end of May. I've kept myself going through the winter with a little pot of rosemary growing inside.

I think I'm gonna branch and try some herb gardening. I've only grown some basil and parsley. Yours looks so healthy.

nothing beats the flavor and scents of fresh herbs! Time for me to get mine started even though there is still snow on the ground.

Makes me wonder if any of my perennial herbs made it under the snow. We still have about 6 inches in the yard right now, but its raining today- i may get to find out soon.
I also have a pot of rosemary on my window sill. I rescued it from the garden in late October.

And don't you understand why they go together in the song when you grow them! At this time of year they must have been lifesavers and such a releif from winter diet boredom.

My rosemary bush is about 15 yrs old now. I will be taking some cuttings and, if they come good, next year the old girl will be uprooted. Good drainage/lots of sand does the trick for rosemary.

I can't seem to get my rosemary to last thru the winter here in zone 6a. Lucky you! I'm looking forward to my basil most of all. I've been growing my own herbs for eons now and it's nearly impossible to pay $3 for a clamshell of dry browned fresh herbs at the supermarket.

I wanted to email you in regards in any possible advertising opportunities you may have with your website...I would be very interested in working something out with you if you have anything at the moment. I'm looking to earn support for a national cause and get visibility for the "plant 1 billion trees" project which Andrew Liveris and the Nature Conservancy have partnered up on for people to donate $1 to. Let me know if you would be interested at all in supporting this cause. I look forward to talking to you soon!

Hi Nerissa. I don't have time to do advertising on my site, but this sounds like a good cause and maybe I can add a link on my sidebar for you. I'll contact you directly. Kathy
