My garden

Well its that time of year again. My dad and i have turned our dirt and are gettin ready to till. The garden is 25 feet long by 10 feet wide.

i want to plant some herbs so i can try real herbs rather than dry. Is it best to plant inside and keep them growing or is it best to plant outside in the garden? What type of herbs are good in my type of climate? In the summer our temp is usually mid 90*s to 106 with no humidity.

What would you guys plant this year in your garden?

Oregano and Marjoram are Great for that sort of thing as is Rosmary and Thyme, woody type plants do well ;)

This page from the Univ. of Utah on growing herbs says Utah is the perfect environment: Red Butte Garden - Gardening Should go well

Before you decide which herbs will grow well in your area, decide which herbs you already like and those that you would like to try to cook with. Then check to see if they will grow in your district. Not much point having a plant that grows well that you don't like!

LT, I don't know where you are in Utah, but rosemary is may not be winter hardy. You probably want to plant that in a pot and take it indoors.

I lived in Manila UT for a couple years, and I know it would have frozen there.

Umm i have never had fresh herbs so i dont know what i like. Out of the dried herbs i like anything italian such as orageno, basil, Italian seasoning, southwest seasoning (pampered chef). Umm and sage and thyme.
