A few weeks back we visited the Round Rock Gardens, which turned out to be a pretty neat nursery. We met some people who knew a ton about gardening, and we will probably go back to buy compost for our garden. In the meantime, we went ahead and bought a rosemary plant since my attempts at starting my own from a sprig didn’t turn out so well. We got the upright version instead of a trailing plant; I like that you can shape it into whatever you want! We had to buy a pot for it also, and I’m sure in a few months we’ll have to get a bigger one again. We used some rosemary yesterday to make some turkey and wild rice soup (along with garlic from the garden), and that rosemary sure is more fragrant from the plant than from the grocery store!
