Rhonda's seed post got me thinking.
My Mum has been an avid and skilled gardener for as long as I can remember. It is a carry over from growing up on a farm I'm sure. It has only been the last few years that I have started to feel the desire to get my hands dirty and become a little more focussed with growing anything.
I started with herbs on pots and then graduated to a few tomato plants in a small plot out the back.
With my Dad's handyman skills a new vege patch was created and a second soon followed. These aren't in the best position but they get enough sun that I can extend my growing knowledge bit by bit.
I am already thinking about where I can build some more beds when I am back in my garden. (Shhh, don't tell Dad)
While I am away I have my kitchen garden with a few little plants for me to tend. I had envisaged myself germinating seeds and getting some leafy greens growing but that doesn't seem to be going to happen. The need for soil, space and sunlight have made me think that Bio-Mart and the farmers market at Wittenbergplatz will be a more practical solution.
For now I will look after these little beauties that provide yummy flavours at dinner as well as delicious pots of warming tea.
I am pretty sure that there will be a few more added to this little group in the next few days. I have a hankering for something with some oregano.
What window sill herbs do you grow?
PS I just walked in from the market with a little oregano plant. Whoops.
