I am really enjoying all of the green as I get ready to plant my kitchen herb garden. Some herbs will be seeded directly into the dirt in a week or two. I used to wait until memorial day but in recent years i have been planting in mid-May.
I have enjoyed gardening my entire life. In recent years the demands of my business have made it hard to start the garden because spring is my busy time. This year went a little better than usual because there was a longer spring. I grow a lot of lilies because they are low maintenance and easy to grow and they spread but not so fast that they get out of control.
My lily habit started shortly after we moved into our home when a neighbor gave me five red lilys. Then my mother gave me some and over the years my collection grew and I have given them away to neighbors and friends. I never had one like this before and it is the first one that I ever bought. I remember thinking at the time that I don’t need another lily. It just opened up a couple of days ago and is growing in between my yellow lilies and the red ones and I was wrong about not needing it.
