Been thinking about a living border between the current orchard and future box drop area surrounding the pole barn for a while now. I think I'm going to build a strip of herbs. The stuff that does indeed overwinter well, and so can be planted in the strip instead of the solarium. The sage is for sure one that will be moved into that border.
AWESOME RESOURCE!!! https://www.artisticgardens.com/catalog/
I have over 15 seed types and one plant on the list for under ten bucks. I want to grow a couple of herb X, don't need a full sized seed packet of hundreds of seeds to just grow a couple of plants.
They have a nice selection of all sorts of seed for very fair prices. I use them year after year for seed ordering.
Between the two I am filling in both my missing veggies, corn and spinach. And I am adding on a future herb garden for a few bucks and some patience.

Still need to do a bit more pricing. Couple more rolls of black plastic to mark the spring beds, and probably wiser right now is a bunch of cheap yard staples. Black plastic I have to buy, but I know a couple resale shops in the area I might be able to see if they have wire hangers I can whack into yard staples.
