    Herb Garden project

    It all started a couple of weekends ago with some $2 clearance plants at Calloway’s.
    Then I decided I wanted to plant them in a raised bed.
    Then I decided I did not like bending down and elevated the bed.
    Then it turned out some bugs and birds liked some of my plants, so this weekend I built a screened enclosure.
    Next weekend I plan to install a solar powered irrigation system.
    But it was a great deal on the plants!

    Very nice work and herb garden. Makes me want to get some power tools and make a greenhouse.

    Kickass. And easy to shade from this Texas sun when the time comes.

    Really nice. I hate people with skill and motivation. I haven't even gotten my basil in the ground yet...tho' my tomatoes are doing well. ;-)

    Nice setup. Could go all out on the side of the fence and grow all types of stuff. Little green house.

    Very cool set up!
    I don't have enough direct sun to put in a regular garden so this year it is herbs and tomatoes in pots strategically placed for the best light.
    It was a strange winter here but the plants are really liking the spring.
    Tomatoes are shoulder high now and the herbs are doing great.

    This. +100. Damm that is a nice job.

    I started a herb garden too. In my apartment balcony. It consists of pots... on moveable interlocking decking. Ahem.

    I also hate the US. And the fact that I don't live there. Sigh... $2000/sqft for land makes projects like this in my hometown a ridiculous faraway dream.

    By the way, am I the only one that thought "hmm, that fence post might make a good knife handle"?

    P.S.: Remember to trim your Basil down, looks like it is ready to flower in a week or so, then it'll bolt and (perhaps) taste bitter.

    You just reminded me where I have some wood to make saya, scraps from the deck! Project for tomorrow is decided.
