Thank you. They really seem to like compost. The ones I bought as itty bitty plants are just growing in compost. There's a bit of soil in with the compost for the chives and that one parsley plant. They were growing in the soil and I potted them so they wouldn't get stepped on again by the workmen. The parsley came along by accident.



There's some purslane in that pot too.

Very nice herb garden!

It looks like you have some space between the stones in your patio. Next spring try out some creeping thyme. It likes those warm stones and when people step on it a nice fragrance is released, perfect for your workmen!

Only when you touch the leaves. You just have to touch them lightly and the smell is on your hands.

Don't think there will be workmen next year. I love the idea of creeping thyme between the patio stones. Thanks for the suggestion.

The last thing to make me smile was this morning while I was waiting in line at Target, there was a little girl (about 1 year old) with her mom and she kept giving me the biggest,sweetest, smile. She melted my heart and I didn't mind the long wait in line.
