Keyhole Herb Garden

This silly thing has been in the works for 3 years. I had initially planned this space to house the bulk of my medicinal herbs. For whatever reason, it never truly worked out. I ended up with a ton of weeds, or a series of higher priority projects. It seems that this may be the year for my medicinals!

There’s a decent foundation of grass clippings, leaf mold, and newspaper. To that, yesterday we covered with 3 year old composted wood chips. My hope is that I’ll be able to grow hyssop, bee balm, German chammomile, lemon balm, and a few other things there. It gets great sun, and is near the front door for easy access. Not only that, but my hope is that it’s a charming focal point in the front yard. I’m going to add a rock border and I have a neat little planter to put in the center with some calendula.

Our place has lacked that homey curb appeal for a while. I’m hoping to improve upon that this year; make it more like a home than a house, you know what I mean?

It needs flowers! And beautiful things.

And I’d love some rocking chairs for the front porch. Perhaps once we finish this debt snowball, we can acquire some outdoor furniture.
