All of my herbs love the desert. Maybe the heat and the sharply draining sand reminds them of the Mediterranean heritage. Above are garlic scapes (flower buds), rosemary, oregano, sweet marjoram and silver thyme.Below, some of the garlic from bed no. 3. Bulbs were small this year due to a number of reasons - they were "volunteers" from cast offs, the winter was long and extra cold, spring was wet and cool - nothing to make them want to "bulb up." Still, an unexpected harvest of volunteers is never a bad thing.

Oregano and Bearded Iris.
