This morning was bright and sunny. It was such a nice change from the grey days we have been having lately. We got a fair amount of snow last night and everything was bright and sparkling. On my way out to the garbage I snapped this picture of my chive pot. I have a garden of herbs that grows close to my back door so that I am able to run out and grab what I need. At the end of the summer I will grab a bunch and bring them in to dry them. My herb garden isn’t very big, it has sage, oregano, thyme and lemon balm and I have a pot of chives close to the deck. I like things that are easy to tend to and since the garden is in pretty much perpetual shade they need to be pretty hardy plants.
This summer I am going to attempt at a garden. I do not have a green thumb and I have a slight tendency to kill plants. But I am hoping to plant some cucumbers and some other veggies. I have no idea what, if you have any ideas feel free to pass them on. I would love to plant some green beans but for some strange reason the leaves of the plants give me hives, but there is nothing better than a whole plate of green beans in the summer. I guess as spring is getting closer I should really start to think about what to plant!
