8:00 PM: the garden of earthly delights
thus begins the season of gushing garden stories. :)
today i transplanted the sage, thyme, mints & garlic chives to the sunnier location where the rosemary has been thriving; it's starting to become a proper herb garden. i turned over the soil in the garden box where they used to live and tucked in three rows of lettuces (arugula, red romaine, and... something). then i mulched everyone with leftover grass clippings from the last time we mowed the lawn. it looks like the nights will get cold this week and i hope that keeps them a little warmer.
i also added compost to the soil around the herbs & before i overturned the garden box. i still can't believe we throw all this weird stuff in it and out comes soil!
i was just saying the same thing yesterday about compost- the cycle of life!
