These are the herbs we took with us from our garden from our first house. I was nervous about taking them, but I wanted to take part of our garden with us. I'm so glad they survived. I had to move them to a new pot to take them. At our first house, I dug down and partially buried the pots my herbs were in. Over time, the pots weakened. It wasn't worth risking the pots falling completely to pieces.
Yes, the thyme and oregano were in separate pots at our first house. We combined them when we moved. Remember, we moved last October. Digging them up and combining them also made me worry if this would decrease the survival rate. I'm glad they survived and are growing well. This brings me joy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I also came across a great resource from Purdue University. Boiler Up! Yes, I'm a Purdue grad, but don't let this potential bias (IU grads) deter you from checking it out. Click here to view this information sheet about growing herbs.
Another resource I like is the Farmer's Almanac, specifically the planting calendar. Click here to view the planting calendar for Indianapolis. If you don't live in Indy as I do, you should still click the link. There is a box at the top of the page where you can put in your zip code to get the planting schedule for your location.
Hopefully, these resources are helpful. Let me know what you think.
Please, sun come back out and bring some warm weather next week!
Remember, anyone can be a gardener. You just need to get ready, get set, and grow!
