There are planting schedules for herbs and vegetables as well as lots of links to more informaton. I'm all about information here at The Herb Cottage!

    The Herb Cottage is proud to have plants for sale at the Industrial Country Market outside of Columbus, TX. The Market is a treasure trove of the unusual, necessary and eclectic. Browse through batteries, garden hoses and nozzles, wheels, imported foods, plastic ware, backpacks, gloves, toys and much, much more. Then, go outside into the greenhouse- all automatically watered- and check out plants for sale from The Herb Cottage as well as different hydroponic growing systems.

    Look around outside and notice all the water capture features, storage tanks for water, the bog gardens and ponds. The whole of the Industrial Country Market is run on Solar Power.

    This was Helmut, my Rooster Greeter. He lived in a pen because his eyesight wasn't good. I was afraid he'd be lost if I let him out. He was quite happy in his 2 story condo, especially when visitors arrived. Wasn't he a beauty?

    One morning I realized I hadn't heard Helmut crowing and cackling from his pen. I looked inside, and he wasn't there. I couldn't believe it. Then, I inspected his pen and noticed the wire at the bottom had been pulled up. There were feathers around the area. I think a raccoon got in and took Helmut.

    Helmut had a good life livening up my little nursery, keeping me company when I worked with the plants. I miss him, his antics and his crowing, cackling and whistling.

    May he Rest in Peace.
