Herb Bed

My new cat-litter-box/herb bed

My new cat litter field herb bed

Yes, these are some larger pebbles. Let’s see if that is enough, but I have some more if needed.
Not much in it yet: the perennial but still frostbitten rosemary in the foreground; the larger green spot to the left of it is the marjoram from last years seed; the curios plant on the middle left, the one with the slightly blueish leaves got sold as a kind of basil that will grow into a larger bush. let’s see if that works here; opposite of it is some lovage crowning; a small bundle of chives from last years bulbs behind that; the tarragon grows quite good despite being on its place for years; in the background to the left is ramson and further back a kind of sorrel (with red leaf-veins); where to find the batch of parsley is left to the reader but if you found it and look to the left you’ll find a small batch of cilantro (from last year’s seed but raised on the window sill).

I still have some tomatoes on the window sill and some chili peppers. The chilis are Habañeros and my own variety based in large parts on the “Hot Thai” strain crossbred with a larger but not very hot variety. Together with a bit of luck I got the size of the larger strain and the capsaicin content of the “Thai Hot” variety. They are also very sweet. The first one to three seconds that is 😉

Yes, the bed edgings need some work, I know 😉
