It might not look like much, but this herb garden has survived several frosts. Even a Roma tomato plant in the back is doing well, blossoming and it has green tomatoes. You also see curly and flat leaved parsley, cilantro, tarragon, marjoram, a puny basil plant, thyme, dill. It is just too cold for basil.
I would have to say that what saved us was a new purchase. This year instead of covering the herbs with ugly bedsheets (you've seen those in yards, I know you have) or blankets, we bought a green frost blanket from Lowe's. We hammered in some stakes and made a tent over the herbs. I think we have used it at least 4 times this winter. In fact, tonight is the last night, but I have faith we will get through tonight also.
In another area of the yard, we have our large rosemary bush and oregano. Those two herbs are the hardiest of all. Never have to worry about them or replant.
This week has been busy. I was without my laptop for 3 days. We are changing from a Dell to an HP. Lots to learn with the change, but I did want to try to see if I could import a photo from the camera and post this blog. I now need to catch up with everyone.
