Cooking is one of my favorite creative activities. Fresh herbs have always played a big role in my cooking. At our NY home, I had an herb garden right outside the front door, right under the kitchen window. One of the advantages of living in Virginia that I have been looking forward to is the warmer and longer growing season. My favorite herb, rosemary, can survive the winter outside in Virginia and thrive in the climate there. 🙂
Here’s a few of my plants and herbs from my NY garden waiting to be put into Virginia soil. We will have a deck right outside the kitchen that will hold my new herb garden. The fig trees will find a home in the yard somewhere. Yes, some of these would be available for purchase in VA but I really liked the idea of bringing some of my favorite plants with me to put down roots along with us in our new home.
