It’s fun (and occasionally frustrating) figuring out  as a photographer and as a gardener how to work with light. Given the state of the yard in the new place I don’t expect an outdoor garden to come into being anytime soon but I’ve been hell-bent on creating a new lush indoor herb garden. Okay, doesn’t have to be lush … just healthy and useful.

I’m trying to experiment with a few new items especially edible flowers but for the most part it is the canonical basil, oregano, marjoram, tarragon, and rosemary. Last night I took a certain chef on a tour of the evolving herb garden. He asked what was he cooking for dinner and I said, “Hmmm. Chicken with herbs, garlic and lemon.” He harvested what he needed. As he walked away with a handful of green he turned back to say, “Do you think you can plant more tarragon? I love working with tarragon.” Not a problem.

Actually it is not so much that the roots are submerged as they have emerged. After a certain person picked basil leaves to make some pesto, I took the mostly bare stems and placed them in water next to a window. There were just enough leaves left to absorb the light and spark some root growth.

What a crazy year, and I don’t just mean in world politics. I think each year I write about the chaos of my indoor garden but this year it is super chaotic. And that’s okay. The leaves still catch the light beautifully. 🙂
