   Matriarchy's Herb, Thyme x 1 Harvesting

Plant: Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) | Variety: Common

Started lots of thyme from seed. I use a lot in cooking, and I want to use it as groundcover in various places. I winter-sowed them in milk jugs and got a lot of action, but a hail storm smashed some of it. I have about 10 good sprouts left in pots. I want more, and more variety – love lemon thyme to cook with.

I lost these, spring 2012 when it was very dry. I wasn’t thinking about having to water things in pots so early in the season. Will resow in 2013 and plant out in the new front sun bed.
