Herb garden magic
My writer’s nook sits at the back of the RUC. It’s a lovely little covered veranda with beautiful views of the mountains and sugar cane fields.
I love gardening and pottering around the 5 acre yard searching for fresh fruit and vegies, but I’ve been spending so much time writing my novels lately (yes – YAY) that I began to feel a little disconnected from the garden. My solution? Plant some herbs on the sill of the writer’s nook.
The picture below is what I now see when I look up from my computer screen (without the words, of course)…
…and when I look to my left I see this
Are you wondering how they’re growing up so high?
I took the following photo from outside
I bought some metal planters from the hardware shop, screwed them onto the timber wall outside and then sat the herb pots inside them. Cool! 😀
The writer’s nook is next to the kitchen (hmm, handy!) so when I’m cooking I can just grab some as I go.
And the smell is AMAZING!
Do you use herbs or have any herb cooking tips for me?
Have a great week!
