Our Herb Garden has taken a new twist (groan).  We now have an herb spiral in the center circle.  Several Master Gardener constructed this last week.  All that is left to do is to select and plant the herbs.  A spiral design is an efficient use of vertical and horizontal space.  It naturally creates a dry zone (top) and a wetter zone (bottom).  The stones used will retain heat gathered during the day to help insulate the plants at night.   Check this out for instructions on making your own:
