I said the other day that the herbs are going insane. The catnip has taken over the back corner of the herb garden and the mint is clearly alive and well – plus it’s now easy to tell them apart. The sage is HUGE though kind of hard to see in this photo. The oregano is massive as well and the poor parsley has gone to seed. I need to look it up but I think it needs to be cut back.
[Note: Apparently Parsley has a biennial lifecycle. It comes back up in the spring and can be harvested then, but then goes to seed and dies. So, if I want parsley in the garden it'll have to be replanted. Or I guess I could let it go crazy and come up from the seeds.]
The chives, thyme, and leeks are more reasonable, perhaps they aren’t getting as much light or water or something. Still, other than needing to replant the basil and maybe the dill, the herb garden is doing great. I think they are mostly going to choke out the weeds, too.
Still need to clean out the upper bed and get some compost in there. I’m thinking of tossing in some herb seeds and letting the whole area be kind of naturally herbacious.
