It's Alive!

Well, it was as of January 1st anyway. I don't know what will happen to the plants with the below freezing temps we're having this week. Guess we'll see after the snow melts.

It was pretty cool to see them alive in January. Especially the Roman Chamomile in the herb garden. It spread like wildfire! I didn't plant any of the green you see in this pic- they all spread from one plant I put in last summer. I will probably have to pull some out in the spring it spread so much.

You can kind of see the strawberry plants in the background too. Quite a few babies came from one plant I had in a pot- the runners spread out and established themselves in the ground next to the pot. I think I may work with this development and turn that area into a strawberry bed since they seem to like it. The two thyme plants towards the left of the picture don't look so good though. I hope I didn't cut them too much and they recover come spring!

I also really love this picture of the budding Red Romaine.

Oooh Chamomile's my all time favourite thing in the garden (though don't quote me on that as it is known to change quite frequently!!).
It is the most amazing smell isn't it. Just lightly sweeping your hand over the Leaves exudes the most wonderful smell!
Heavenly.
It does self seed as well which is a delight for me because it just pops up everywhere.
I like Chamomile Tea too.
