A trio of happy herbs

Scuba78Steve is talking about growing Herbs from Melbourne

Garden in progress

Basil, thyme and oregano.

These are the three most used herbs in my kitchen and the three that I am the most keen to get growing to make sure my summer supply can keep up.  I like to grow my herbs in pots because they dont seem to need quite as much space as many of the other vegetables I grow.

I have grown these all from seed and Im fairly confident that if i can keep the birds and my dog away from them I will be taking cuttings back into the kitchen in the next few weeks.

I also sowed the next generation of seeds on the same day that I planted all these out, so thats a bit of an insurance policy in case these guys dont make it.
