The new selected site is an awkward parcel of land between the pool and the east side of the house, very difficult to mow. My plan is to remove the sod and dig pots into the soil. The pots actually have their bottoms removed. The idea of the pots is to control root spread. Some herbs such as mint and oregano can become unruly if left to their own devices. I plan to have a nicely contained specimen of each herb, mostly perennial, supplemented with a few annual plantings such as cilantro.
Now we won't even have to slip on our shoes, if we chose not, to go and get a sprig of parsley.
Come along with me on my time lapse journey.
|Removing the sod|
|Putting the pots in place|
|Pots embedded and weed barrier installed|
|Peas stone mulch in place|
|Pots filled with compost, new transplants.|
|Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.|
And that is about all I have to say for today.
