o, basil

Wednesday, 11 January 2012

One of my greatest joys and pleasures is my garden. We were so fortunate to buy a house here in Canberra with an established garden . . . one obviously tended by a fellow plant lover.

Along with all the plants we have for little but viewing pleasure, we have a large risen veggie patch and small fruit tree orchard (very small!) - and this year I've been determined to grow really decent herbs, using companion planting methods.

Just take a look at this magnificent basil, plucked from the garden and held aloft by Ella, which was planted right near our tomatoes to encourage better growth. I also have sage, oregano, thyme, continental parsley, rosemary and coriander.

What herbs are you growing?
