Thinking I’ll do a huge Herb Garden….

Print Friendly

I think that this year I want an enormous Herb Garden!  The photo above shows my three Raised-Beds (an Earlier Post on Raised-Beds) that have produced wonderfully for three years now.

Let’s take a closer look at that first Raised-Bed:

This Raised-Bed is 3 feet by 4 feet for a total of 12 Square Feet of Gardening Goodness!  How’s that for Enormous??

Now, What Herbs to Plant?

My Short-List of absolutely required Herbs:

  • Basil (Sweet, Italian, Liquorice, Lemon)
  • Dill
  • Garlic
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Thyme

These are some of the most common Herbs found in most kitchens in the U.S.   Some are warm weather crops and some are year round.  The order in which I plant will follow my weather here in Northeast Pennsylvania, Zones 6-7.

Here is the above List in Planting Chronological Order from First to Last:

  • Garlic (Mid-Fall; Or Late-Winter; October or February )
  • Basil, Dill, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary (After Last Spring Frost; June 1st)
  • Sage, Rosemary (Early Summer; June to July)


So that’s the Plan for the Herb Garden Folks!  Don’t Worry, I plan to give you specifics on each Herb I’ve outlined above so you can try them too.

Get ready to Garden this year!  It does a body good!

Until next Time…Stay Curious!
