So this year a new addition to our mini farm is an herb garden. My hope is to fill it with medicinal and culinary herbs. Right now it is just a thought in my head and a tilled up piece of back yard. I would really like to have a back yard that does not need any mowing. Right now we don't use the back yard. There were a couple of shrubs in the middle of the space, planted by the previous owners. So those were the first to go, one was replanted in a better spot and the other will be mulched and reused in another form ;-)
This area is near the house so it will be easy to weed and take care of. It is beside my little patio area, I think you can see some of the edge of the patio in the picture. I have a chair there, and really enjoy just sitting and knitting...having a cuppa chai and looking out over the mountainous backdrop. So I think the addition of the herb garden will be a pleasing sight. It is a pretty large circle, about 1/3 of it gets total sun and the other 2/3 gets partial sun. I want to add some berry bushes to the sides, but that is a project for another day.
