Planning my Herb Garden

My mailbox held a nice surprise today. An order that I had placed with Mountain Rose Herbs last week had arrived.

I was excited to discover that they sold seeds and in browsing through their offerings I found this:

It's a package of 18 different medicinal herb seed packets with which you can plant a medicinal herb garden. Here are the 18 varieties included in the kit:

They come in quantities of either 100 seeds or 200 seeds per packet. I won't plant each variety. Heaven knows that Burdock is my nemesis and I've been trying to eradicate it from my yard for the past seven years. Never ever would I intentionally plant burdock seeds- and besides, there's plenty of burdock growing wild in the park next door (and sometimes in my yard, despite my best efforts).

I also ordered these seeds. They weren't included in the kit, but I wanted them too:

Even though we have about 20 inches of snow on the ground, with waist high drifts, I'm dreaming of spring.

Oh, that makes me wish I had a bigger garden. On second thought, maybe not...I have a hard enough time maintaining a tiny one.
Happy planning :)

Hi adrienne!

Does your tortoise ever get into your garden?
