Yes, it still needs mulch.
Close up on the aloe. It is so useful for burns and rashes.
The second herb garden is in the backyard but again right outside the back door for easy access. A few pictures I took while preparing for planting - you can see what a weedy mess it was:
Almost weed free!
Basil (2 plants, top left), parsley (top right), other three are nasturtium, which have edible flowers.
A new pineapple sage (bottom) to join the two baby ones above it that have come up voluntarily.
Along the side wall of the garage where they'll be a little more protected, 2 dill (toward the top right) and a sage (lower right). The top right corner there is reserved for lemon grass, and we have plenty of space for more herbs and flowers.
One last sunny picture of the first nasturtium blooming.
