Meanwhile, on the Deck…

I have just a few more garden update photos to share:

Parsley, chives and lemon thyme have really taken off in the herb garden. I’ve been putting fresh parsley in everything, the chives will be front and center in a ranch dressing I’ll be making (and posting) this week. And the lemon thyme? Well, mainly I just like snipping it and rubbing it on my hands. Have I mentioned I’m a little crazy-in-love with the smell of lemon thyme?

Meanwhile, on the other side of the planter the basil is taking its sweet time, but the cilantro is making great progress. We sprinkled cilantro on our chicken chili last night, and today it’s part of a marinade for our salmon dinner!

This blurry little guy is a sprout of dill I found in the Grow Camp. Every time I see a volunteer sprout pop up in the Grow Camp, I haven’t the heart to toss them! So this guy I transplanted here. He seems to be fairing OK so far.

Take a look at my brussels sprout plant! On the advice of many of you dear readers, I decided to keep one and placed it in a random planter I had in the garage. I’m so glad I did! I’m looking forward to watching its progress.

On the flower front, we also have some petunias on the deck. I’m really pleased with the health of these plants. I have a sketchy history with petunias. LOL

So that’s everything that’s going on out back! It’s been very rainy the past two days, so I’m looking forward to some sun (and weeding – not looking forward to that) in the coming days.

    I’m dabbling with a garden this year and so far so good. It’s been a challenge with 5 dogs digging randomly and flattening young sprouts like Godzilla stomping through a city. Most of the plants are of a size now they are beyond stomping but I’m not sure how they’ll respond to some of the watering my helpers provide. I’ve not attempted any herbs but there are some I would love to try. Looks like yours are doing well. Good luck with the garden and love your blog.
