Inventory of Herbs in the Garden

I made a page inventorizing the herbal medicines in my apothecary, and I thought I should  also have a page with all the herbs growing in the garden and being grown from seed. Ordered alphabetically according to their Latin name, annuals indicated:

  1. Gosh, I’m behind on so many great posts. I really like your idea for this one and will have to do the same. I was not successful with some of the new herbs I tried (as in no germination), but herbs are one thing that is too important to give up on. I was worried I couldn’t remember what I’d planted, so I made some markers from old mini-blind slats. So glad I did because at times I seem to have a terrible memory!
