Yesterday it hit me: I need to plant an herb garden, NOW!
This isn't anything new for me, I have done it a couple of times, but I have two things going against me: lack of space and plenty of squirrels.
I decided not let those things get me down, however. Who needs a big yard for herbs? Nobody. A little back porch will do just fine, right? And for the squirrels, a Google search gave me some ideas to keep them away, like mixing water/vingegar/garlic together and putting it on the perimeter of your garden. Perimeter in my case means edge of the pot, but I decided to try it. The OSH lady assured me that a little vinegar and garlic (a little!) would not hurt my plants, so I am giving it a try. I will let you know how it goes. Until I know for sure whether or not the squirrels will stay away, I will enjoy my parsley, tarragon, oregano, and rosemary. Basil coming soon.
