Thyme

I brought my thyme plants inside for the winter. I have beautiful pots for them. I thought I could enjoy a little fresh herbs this winter. That is until Boo (our cat) discovered they were there. Apparently Boo finds the plants quite tasty.

I love the title of your blog. When Weeds Whisper..says it all.
Herbs so seldom do well inside so don't feel bad about your cat having a feast or fun feast..

the only ones i've had luck growing inside are sweet basil - i have some plants i grew from seeds a couple years ago who are still going strong - and rosemary. i have two rosemary bushes - one in a big pot and one in a little one. they say that where rosemary grows, women rule :).

Well, at least they're perennial 'round here, so whatever is outside will still be there for ya.

I've actually harvested my thyme throughout the winter from my outdoor plants!

Ah, Annie it doesn't surprise me that your rosemary flourishes.

Pleasant life to look forward to after the great turmoil, we see peaking over the horizons. Clip this page, gentle folk, keep its earthy message, its survival technology, so well described, in printed form, just in case, after the cataclysm, NEMP or EMP bombs, even our trusty computers are put to rest. Dried veggies, herbs, make sustenance even in off-seasons possible, sun will do the jog if you have the screens on hand, and brewing talents, wine-making talents must be developed now, bottles stored up, when even accidental waste is not too tragic, before the bust. Dandelion greens picked soon enough, are so tender, flavorful. Rhubarb plants very durable, good food too, grow like weeds! Aquaculture might give life-saving protein one day, if understood, developed now, in these latter days the dawning of the holocaust to come.
