The Boat Garden

Planting time
Planting thyme
The shoe bag herb garden

With Dan’s passion for fresh herbs and how he gets downright crabby if he doesn’t have a steady supply of Italian (flat-leaf) parsley – the floating herb garden was created. I can’t take credit for the design as I stole the idea from the internet. The hardest task was finding a clear hanging shoe bag.

We hung it on the dock rail before we left and since then it has hung out on the bowsprit when the temps are good and in the cockpit when we’re underway or it’s cool and windy. Besides the two parsley plants we have rosemary, basil, oregano, chives, and thyme.
