May 6, 2012 journal

The sun finally decided to pay us a visit today and by afternoon the greenhouse was above eighty degrees for the first time in more than a week.

The above photo is a planting of thyme, oregano and rosemary that will be used for cooking.  My thinking is that as long as I am going to grow them, I may as well make it as attractive as possible. 

The herbs are planted in coir and perlite, and will occasionally be fed used hydroponic nutrients.  I find that herbs are pretty hardy and the more they struggle to survive, the more essential oils they produce, and consequently, the better they taste.
