Garden Notes

Welcome to our garden!

It’s been a number of years since we started OurHerbGarden.com. I’ve enjoyed sharing with you my research on the various herbs we consider adding to our own garden. I’ve debated on adding a more personal gardening blog to the site and as you can see, that’s what this section of the site is for. I’m no Martha Stewart and our garden is a bit too wild and wooly to ever be included in one of those fancy home and garden tours but I love plants and flowers and so does the rest of my family. We garden as much for ourselves as we do for the many wonderful woodland creatures that share our back yard with us.

This blog will be mere ramblings about our gardening, our resident wildlife and other bits and pieces thrown in for good measure. When I come across cool ideas or gardening gadgets, I’ll share those too.

Hopefully, you will find this section of OurHerbGarden.com as useful as the reference articles.
