Herb Garden

Do you grow your own herbs or buy them?
Last year I decided to grow my own and see what happens.  My plan was to hopefully grow them all year round but by the end of September they were starting to die.  I am not sure if it was because I had too small of pots or because I kept forgetting to water them.  My husband said that it was because of the latter.  He probably is right, but I won't tell him that.
I do plan to plant more this year.  I might even branch out to a few different types.  We will see what happens.  I really should get doing them.  I do have the pots ready. 
I took small clay pots and spray painted them a blue and green colour as that is the colours of my kitchen and pantry.  I had some scrapbooking letters that I used to label the pots, so that I would know what was growing and not mix them up.

As you see I planted Anise, Oregano, Parsley, Basil and Thyme.  These are the spices that I use a lot of.  This year I am not sure about the Anise as I didn't know when I should be harvesting them and I waited to long..

I had to replant the Thyme as it didn't grow..

I loved having fresh herbs to use in my baking and cooking and can't wait have them again.  This year I am going to try and dry them and crush them.  Hopefully that will work.
