My Little Herb Garden

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.


  1. I LOVE having my cilantro and parsley! I've tried to plant other ones before, but they died :( I think I over-watered them. I have a little deck, but there's no shade and I think it's gets to hot for them in the summer. So now I keep them on my kitchen window :) I love how your pots are so colorful! I kind of went on a chalkboard craze :)

  2. Your little herb garden is so cute!! And will be SO useful very soon. Great idea! xo

  3. oooh this looks like a lot of fun. i feel inspired to plant a little garden too :)

  4. I'd love to have an herb garden like yours, but the Arizona heat kills everything. Do you plant yours from seed?
