I’ve been learning so much from other gardeners on Twitter and one of the people I follow mentioned that there was a #herbchat today. I joined in, finding it easiest to follow on Nurph and learned quite a bit about growing and planting herbs! I have two parsley plants left from last year that are looking a little spindly, but the host of herb chat, Nancy said it should thicken up when it gets more sunlight.
Obviously I’ve already started some parsley seeds, but I am not also going to be on the lookout for German chamomile, basil, thyme, and oregano. I already have ordered some organic chive and can’t wait to start them. Chive brings back happy memories for me, because my grandma always grew them. I remember playing in the garden and picking fresh chive to munch on while I played. I can’t wait to make some tea like this out of chamomile tea out of flowers that I’ve grown by myself!
