treasures in the herb garden

One of my favorite places to be is among all my friends in our herb garden. Here’s a peek at some of the plants I call friends.


flowers in the veggie gardens…

Here’s a game– name the vegetable that matches the flower!  Okay, the Rose of Sharon and Sunflower don’t count.  There’s cantaloupe, potato, hot pepper, squash, tomato and mustard flowers.  Did you get them?  :)


The wheel turns and today we mark both the longest day (Northern Hemisphere) and the shortest day (Southern Hemisphere).

Four seasons

from the lawn and gardens…

What a wonderful time of year!  We are so busy these days… every single day.  Something new to explore and learn, cook and preserve.  Pictured below:  Dandelion vinegar, drying our maiden harvest of oregano (our bed will provide 2 more harvests this season), the mulberries are so plentiful this year (and we are very grateful!), drying thyme and mullein.  More updates in a week or so…
