Fennel, anyone?

Matt got inspired earlier this year when I said I wanted to start growing a herb garden. One of the plants he chose to put in his garden was fennel. I have never grown fennel, but I like the tea, but BOY was I surprised to see how MASSIVE those plants can get!!! They finally had to come out today to make room for our summer crop. The roots were in quite deep so it took a lot of strength to get them out.
Look more like little trees, rather than a small herb *lol*
Not seeds and leaves are drying in the hot water cupboard. Should have taken the bulb, too. Apparently that's really nice in soups. Maybe next time. Hopefully the drying works out, then I can use the seeds to plant another fennel in MY garden :-)
