That’s about 800 lbs of top soil, not only for our garden but flower beds too! We’ve got some work to do! Next week, I’ll show you our planted garden, this week I had to show the herb garden because that is my favorite part!
I love cooking with fresh herbs, which means this is my favorite part of the garden…the fresh herbs. I plant my herb garden right on the ledge of my back porch. My husband has bolted down some planters for me there. This seemed to work perfectly last year, since I was able to easily walk outside, trim some herbs and cook with them!
I was excited to see a few sprouts this week!
What was I not excited to see as I watered them? ANTS! If there is one thing I HATE, it’s ANTS!
I told my husband shortly after we moved into this house that I think it was built on an ant hill! Literally, thousands of ant hills in our yard, even our exterminator was shocked! We noticed it all throughout the neighborhood so maybe it is the fact the soil is so moist in our area.
Nevertheless, their lives were short because it was baby powder to the rescue! Yes, baby powder…it’s my weapon of choice. It works wonders and it is not toxic!
Now, I’m heading back out to check up on my herbs and water, then next week stay tuned for our planted garden!
Happy Gardening Sunday!
