This is the cutest jalapeno yet.
The herb garden is doing nice!
We are seeing some small tomatoes. YAY!
We ate this a few nights ago: Yummy!
Found this flower in the garden. Have no idea where it came from. We think it might be a double balloon flower:
A piece of rusted, used wrought iron railing bought from a demolition company for $49. About 4 feet long. (Posted this for Jewels)
Our Bee Balm looks half dead from the heat wave we have been experiencing.
Made and froze 32 wraps the other day. Mmmm…..
Happy Canada Day! Have a great long week-end.
If you love black licorice, you’ll love this herb! When we get the time we will be adding the many different uses for everything in our gardens.
We bought this plant at an herb shop and will propagate it for new harvests. One thing we have learned is that herbs need a lot of space. They need to be in the ground with freedom to roam. Next summer they will be moved to the back into a much larger garden. Things we want to contain will probably take their place in this raised bed.
Anise-Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)
Attractive honey plant; produces abundant nectar which yields a light fragrant honey. Strongly anise-scented; delightful for tea or as culinary seasoning. Showy blue flowers.
