Garden Plant Documentation Project

MärchenroseTo the left is our second rose. The first was hidden among the l leaves and it was impossible to take a picture of it.

I have a new photo and garden project.

I want to take pictures of all plants in our garden and write down what they are and maybe some more. Today i started out with a few [[herbs]] which you can look at in my new garden category in the freshly updated wiki.

For the herbs I plan on writing down what they are good for – mostly cooking of course. For example thyme is good for any recipe 😉 and rosemary for potatoes.

But it is not all cooking: today I got a lemon verbena at the garden center and this is good for teas or making window cleaner.

My one and only favorite book on garden herbs is still the one by Jekka McVicar I got for my birthday: The New Book of Herbs.

Tomorrow I’ll plant the remaining loot from the garden center …
