I've always wanted a little garden space dedicated solely to herbs, but this goes beyond what I could've ever imagined. What was once a playground for weeds is now dubbed the "Herb Hotel". A section of the garden slope was subject to erosion during heavy rains, so my husband built this low retaining wall with enough surface area to tuck in a few flavoring essentials. More growing space equals more new purchases from the nursery, and I picked up peppermint, thyme and nepitella (bottom right), a wild type of mint used in italian cuisine. That just started the ball rolling, and into the cart went a lavender bush, a rhubarb and 3 small pots of aubrieta deltoidea. I'll put up a photo of the finished project later.
