    Hello all gardeners! New member here. I have tiny garden full of veggies, herbs (I love herbs) and flowers here up north. I have been an amateur gardener since I was 4 and my grandfather teached me how to sow the peas (it was super exciting!). :snorky:

    When I am not in my garden, you may find me from my kitchen cooking and baking or from knitting and crocheting.

    I wish to find from here some new ideas and share my experiences.

    The growing season is just at the beginning here but hopely we will get some sunny days during the summer. The herb garden at beginning of June:

    And that´s how it usually looks at the middle of summer:

          Welcome to the forum! I love the smell of herbs too. Thank you for showing pictures of your garden. I don't have bardens either but I enjoy what I have:)

                Hello @Saliha :sign0016: and nice to have you with us and thank you for adding the pictures...you seem to know how to grow your stuff by the second picture :thumbsup:

                The only herbs we've had in our garden are Curry plants and lavender...the curry ones do give off a strong smell when the heat gets at them :heehee:
