Herb Gardens.

Helloooo everyone! How are you all doing today?

Recently, I have become obsessed with the idea of gardening. 

Why? Because it is much healthier to grow your own pesticide-free foods…plus, you’ll have enough fresh produce to last you all summer!!!

A few days ago I went to Pipkins, a local farmer’s market type place that sells a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other food items… as well as flowers and plants! I went there with the intention of buying only a few herbs to plan in my little planter boxers… of course, I came home with ten plants. TEN. That is a lot of herbs.

Getting ready to plant my herbs...

Ta-da!! Herbs planted, and two pots of 
gerbera daisies (my fav. flower!)

I plan to also use part of my parents’ garden to grow my own vegetables- tomatoes, kale, leeks, peppers, and I don’t even know what else! I’m excited about it. I’m ready for lots of veggies!

Lavender, chives, and lime mint...

Thyme, Oregano, and Tarragon!
I also planted pineapple sage and purple basil.

My all time favorite kind of flower....
Gerbera Daisies!!! 

Do you have a garden? What do you grow? Do you have any tips?

Much love,
