The Herbal Kids Got Some Sun!


I am always amazed at how well herb containers exist in our garage in the winter.  Even when we were gone a week in Miami, they did very well.  Across the back of the bench are two containers full of 'Logee's Snowflake' scented geraniums.  This is their third year and they continue to thrive! The other herb that is doing just fine in the garage is the sweet lavender which is tender for us.  It would not survive in our winters.  The Herbal Husband loves his lavenders.  I think we have at least one more upstairs in a western facing window.  It has lots of flowers and blooms on it!  You won't believe the lemon verbena!  I'll show you a photo tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

Wouldn't it be fun to have a door on each side of the garage to open on a nice sunny day? ;D

Definitely! That works for me. We actually saw a garage door that was not see through but that the entire door let light in. We decided it was a home in California or where the weather is not extreme! We get too cold for that to work. Then we thought about making the garage a plant room and put French doors instead of a garage door! I think we have thought of it all. Haven't done any of it! Great ideas, no execution! Thanks for stopping by, Cindy!;>}
