Here’s the beginnings of Lori’s herb garden. In planning it, we came to the realization that this small section of our yard was about the same size as the entire backyard of our home in San Jose. It will feature a similar design as well, except that it will be herbs. A couple of weeks ago I cleaned and laid the bricks for the center circle. I still need about two more rings of bricks, but my back told me to quit for the day, and then the serious rains set in, making the yard a muddy mess to work in. So until spring, this is likely what it will look like.
