What is a potager garden you ask?
A potager garden is a French method of creating ornamental vegetable or kitchen gardens. Often flowers (edible and non-edible) and herbs are planted with the vegetables to enhance the beauty. The goal is to make the function of providing food aesthetically pleasing. Plants are chosen as much for their functionality as for their color and form.
We set about planting the herbs and veggies to the sounds of Sting, Sarah, Billy and Paul on a truly beautiful LA day.
Becca confided in me that she had always wanted to plant a secret garden after she had read the book of the same name.
"My garden of pots is like some living diary, a collection of occasions, memories, places and friendships." Sara Midda
And so in this little corner, this little corner of my backyard, a garden grows.
I have Buddha to watch over my tea herbs.
Now we will sit and wait and see what Spring will bring.
