you can see the bricks for the new herb garden piled on the left
Mehmet had cleared the plot a few months ago so here it was, just awaiting my attention. In the meantime, I had been doing my reading so had a fairly good idea of what I wanted, at least the shape if not the content!
Today was the day!

So here it was, beautifully laid out and looking just great. Now the question was, what to plant in it. The idea was a herb garden but the trouble is that surprisingly there are not that many herbs available in this part of the country. I was set in the idea of having only herbs and not vegetables but today I went to market and there I met a lovely guy selling vegetable seedlings. So of course I succumbed and bought some nice-looking Çanakkale tomato and green pepper seedlings. The peppers are not the hot variety but the ones called çarliston. I am totally open to whatever may happen! After all, this is my first time.

So in a flash 3 of the 4 beds are already full! If you have any suggestions for the fourth, please let me know. I am just a novice here ....
