« Part 6: almost 3 months later Part 7 of Herb garden series no next part

after nearly 4 months, I’ve used up all the fertilizer tablets that came with the kit, and EVERYTHING is still growing better than ever. Gonna let it “run it’s course” and see how much longer they keep growing. Nothings bolted yet (despite four months of 17-18 hours of “sunshine)

A small stack of baggies in the freezer have bulked up considerably, and I’m on the verge of starting a second bag for the cilanto and parsley. The mint has also come into it’s own. The Basil’s are both still doing well, but I’m not amassing as much, as these get used much more often.

In the past week or two, we went from having a full yard of Knee deep (or more) snow, to virtually none. Gotta start looking at planting/seeding dates against the last frost date. I’m less prepared for “real” gardening outside now than I was January 1st!

sounds like you are almost “SPOILED” ... not prepared for the “real” gardening.
Congrats on the successful crops you were able to harvest

How are the crops been doing this year? Still stocking up, or did you run out of your cache?

One thing about herbs is they are pretty easy to grow, especially compared to other plants.

Still stocking up Bill! I think I have more herbs in the freezer than I’ve bought in any given year!
