I decided to start an herb garden. I think I assumed it would be easy because of my desire to have organic herbs at my disposal. The thought of walking up to my garden and picking a few herbs to mix to cure an ailment or to flavor a meal excites me. What I didn’t realize is that it takes a lot of daily work to care for plants. As I said RIP to my lavender, I decided I needed to do something drastic. I sent the rest of my plants to foster care…I sent them to my grandmother’s house!
For as long as I can remember, my grandmother has kept dozens of plants and flowers in her sunroom and on her patio. These plants flourish under her green thumb and I knew my oregano, parsley, and basil needed her love so they’ll be in her care until March or April. I know my herbs are in good hands.
On my drive home, I was reminded of something. Sometimes you have to give things up and come back to them when the time is right. Take some time and purge or learn or whatever it is that you need to do, and come back when the time is right. Being prepared and whole makes life so much easier.
I look forward to giving an update on my herbs come April and will hopefully be adding a few more to my garden 🙂
