Inventory of Herbs in the Garden

  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!
