The photo is from the end of June. The neat truth about herbs–most are essentially weeds. Just now 2 weeks later and I have about triple the volume. What we’ve got a brewin’:
- Thai basil
In another pot I have spearmint, thyme, & oregano.
The trick to crowding herbs together to get a lush overgrown pot is to be sure you have a good 18″ of loosened soil. The lets roots grow down down down. It also pays to use a quality potting mix (or good soil mixed with a good amount of compost). Other than that, give them a sunny spot and make sure they get watered every 2-3 days and nature will take its course.
Coming up this week
A month ago I started some hazelnut infused vodka, which is just about ready. We’ve also run out of most of our citrus infusions, so a trip to the organic market in the near future.
