Even when we lived in the apartment with the tiny balcony I had herbs. It was pretty much the only gardening I could do there, my little one foot by 3 foot planter box. Now that we are at Awesome Opossum I’ve gone a little crazy with gardening, most every area I’ve planted things you will always find at least one herb mixed in the bunch. Thyme is such a rock star in the garden. Normally I stick to two types, English and lemon. Not only does this stuff grow like crazy, it smells amazing (especially the lemon), and of course can be used in the kitchen.
If you purchase a few thyme plants early in the growing season you will end up with plants that can be divided and replanted in other areas in a couple months. I went a little crazy with the thyme plants this year so I think I’ll be good for a loooong while.
Today I was feeling all Pinteresty and decided to bring a few of the little plants inside to grow in a mini greenhouse.
I grabbed three of the little thyme plants and put in this cute garage sale score (I believe I paid around one dollar for it). The greenhouse was purchased at Ikea last year. The pots are quite small so they will have to be replanted in the spring.
