the Potager

Growing herbs and other edibles near the back door is a must in my books.  But this area (above) was all grass when I moved here in late September 2016.

So we dug up the grass and planted oregano, thyme, chives, strawberries, and some ornamentals, separated by diagonal lines of blue fescue.

The soil is very clay-ey so I hope the herbs do okay here. And by the way, sorry for the dirt all over the sidewalk but that sticky clay doesn’t sweep up and the outside water is already turned off for the season!

I recently moved from Calgary.  Here are a few pics of my potager and herb gardens at my old house:
